The process we follow in the ANgWG is

  • Any member of the WG can put an issue on that list.
  • As chair I will ask the person making the suggestion to be the 'token holder' for that subject.  By that I mean they are responsible for gathering a small group of interested WG group members, or others, to work with them to produce an initial recommendation for the group as a whole to consider.
  • During every meeting the agenda will include a request for the token holder to give an update.  If there is something for the larger group to discuss, we discuss it.
    • When something is fully baked, the ANgWG is asked for degree of consensus for sending it forward to the ALAC as a recommendation for ALAC action.
    • If the topic languishes with no work being done, I will eventually ask the group whether we can drop it from the meeting discussion rotation

Additionally, the ANgWG has been open to any community member who wants to participate.  But it is enough to work on the topic with the token holder, no one has to join the group to participate in creating a recommendation.  They do need to be in the group to be part of the consensus determination.
