Fwd: INCITS EB Response to the INCITS/T10 Request for Waiver of RD-1, Section 3.2 - Policy Regarding Document Access and Membership Benefits (in080329) - Action Item a08.108 from the April 2008 INCITS EB Meeting

The INCITS EB has rejected T10's request for a waiver from the new INCITS
policy that would effectively close public access to T10 documents (see
below).
I plan to comply with preparing the requested text. However, based on the
EB's overwhelming rejection of our request, I think it is time to investigate
establishing an alternative ANSI-accredited storage standards development
organization that will pledge to remain open. I will pursue this avenue as
well.

>Background
>
>At the April 2008 INCITS Executive Board meeting, the INCITS/T10 request for
a waiver of the policy documented in in080329 which applies to RD-1, clause
3.2 was reviewed noting that INCITS/T10 believed that the requirements would
place an undue burden on the committee and would prevent it from successfully
and efficiently completing its program of work.  The following motion was
addressed:
>
> 
>
>(Wright/Farance)
>
>The INCITS Executive Board disapproves the INCITS/T10 request for a waiver
of RD-1, Section 3.2 - Policy Regarding Document Access and Membership
Benefits, as detailed in in080329.
>
>Vote on the motion:  10-0-2 (EMC and Hewlett-Packard)-5=17
>
>The motion passed.
>
> 
>
>The following action item was assigned:
>
> 
>
>Action Item (a08.108):  The INCITS Secretariat will notify the INCITS/T10
that EB has disapproved request for waiver of RD-1, Section 3.2 - Policy
Regarding Document Access and Membership Benefits as detailed in in080329. 
The Secretariat will convey the EB's encouragement that  T10 review the
rights of liaisons and FoC to identify how the existing process was not
meeting their needs and to provide alternate text that would satisfy their
needs as well as those of the EB.
