OpenMPE Board of Directors Meeting Minutes

02 Jul 2002

Present: Jon Backus, Mark Klein, Christian Lheureux, Chris Miller, Ken Sletten, Jeff Vance
Absent: Ted Ashton, Birket Foster, John Marrah

RESOLVED that the minutes of 11 Jun 2002 be ratified. The scheduled 25 Jun 2002 meeting was canceled due to technical problems at AT&T.
Next Meeting
RESOLVED that the next Board meeting would be 16 July 2002 and that the future meetings would be every two weeks from this new date. The time for the meetings was not changed.
Short Survey
The results of the recently completed "Short Survey" were reviewed. It was decided that roughly a 10% sampling of the companies that agreed to be contacted for follow-up would be identified to HP. It is believed this will increase the perceived validity of the survey results in HP's eyes.
Long Survey
It was agreed that the "Longer Survey" talked about should not happen prior to some form of public response to the "Short Survey" by HP.
Open Letter
The HP and Interex endorsements were discussed and it was decided to begin creating an "Open Letter" to the MPE community about OpenMPE, the efforts, and how members of the community can become involved.
MPE Forum
Apparently, in recent MPE Forum discussion, there has been talk of creating a seat for OpenMPE. It was resolved that OpenMPE would accept such a seat should it be offered. Jon Backus is to follow up with Interex to determine the status.
