Joint Meeting Agenda

Joint Meeting Agenda
21-24 February 2006
Ottawa, Canada hosted by the Standards Council of Canada

The tenth plenary meeting of the Austin Group is being held in Ottawa, Canada. The meeting is being hosted by the Standards Council of Canada.

The second meeting of the SC22 POSIX Advisory Group will occur colocated (exact date and time to follow).

The PASC SEC and The Open Group Base Working Group are also expected to meet colocated.

Logistics information are available here.

Meeting Goals

The goal of this meeting is to put together the work plan for the next revision of the joint standard. Some initial topic areas that will be considered are as follows:

 * Outstanding defect reports and Interpretation Requests that
   may require changes to the standard not permitted through
   the Technical Corrigenda Process (see document Austin/SD5).
 * New interfaces being submitted through The Open Group (the
   "strawman" interfaces document) and from other parties.
 * Possible areas where alignment with IS 23360 can be improved.

A large part of the meeting will be spent doing issue resolution based on Aardvark comments submitted during the period since the 2004 edition of the standard was completed. Attendees are assumed to be familiar with the proposed dispositions for the aardvark prior to the attendance of the meeting - these will not be discussed unless there is some disagreement with the proposal.

Meeting Preparation

Materials will be available at the meeting in electronic form on a reference CD-ROM and mountable USB memory stick. Please familiarise yourself with the documents produced from earlier Austin Group meetings ; these documents are available in the online document register.

Meeting Format

The meeting will consist of full time plenary sessions.

Meeting Times

The meeting is expected to run from 9 am  to 5pm  Tuesday through Thursday and 9am to 12 noon on the Friday.
