Process

This 5-stage process was meant for the creation of standard libraries. We would need to adapt it somewhat for general standardization documents.

  1. Draft
    Who
    Any member can store a draft document or library in the repository
    Prerequisites
    None, a draft can be introduced anytime into the repository
    Where
    A Draft/ directory in the repository
  2. Proposed
    Who
    A proposer and an independent second supporter (who must be named in the proposal)
    Prerequisites
    The proposer has brought the library into publishable shape and has convinced a supporter
    Where
    A Proposed/ directory in the repository (moved there by the second supporter)
  3. Trial
    Who
    Approved by secretary, and a maintainer assigned
    Prerequisites
    Accepted for publication by a majority vote among the members
    Where
    The library/ directory in the repository (moved there by the secretary)
  4. Stable
    Who
    Updated by maintainer, voting initiated by anyone, admin by secretary
    Prerequisites
    Accepted as stable by a majority vote among the members
    Where
    The library/ directory in the repository, status marked
  5. Deprecated
    Prerequisites
    Deprecated by a majority vote among the members
    Where
    Remains in the library/ directory, but status marked accordingly

What we need to implement this process:

  1. a formal list of the voting members
  2. an elected secretary to call for votes etc
