Re: new SIG

Hi Liz & Cheryl,
I think what we hope to accomplish from a SIG is a more open dialogue for users/developers to really come together and get work done.
I know there is some concerns over past performance but we believe in part that is due to the siloed nature of the industry. Being an advocate and champion of open source and seeing in its very nature to break down these barriers provides a perfect platform where we can make progress. It also gives a chance for more collaboration across groups that might not commonly interact if they are just members of the TUG.
I feel like at the minimum the members of the TUG whom wish to create a SIG at least are able to come forward to the TOC with a proposal. That would allow everyone to respond in the open their concerns & desires.
Fredrick, please respond if I have misinterpreted your wishes here.
