1. Open Standards
Mr. Ghosh suggested and we agreed to change messaging to refer to "Open Standards for Software" (as opposed to the entire universe of Open Standards).
Discussion of whether to create a mark for Open Standards? Mr. Tiemann feels it is too much work to do until we have gathered substantial support for our Requirements doc….may reconsider after we have built demonstrable consensus. Mr. Tiemann will edit the Requirements document to reflect this strategy.
Ms. Cooper began an FAQ document on the private wiki for eventual use on the public pages. Board should contribute.
