We do not have the transcripts back from the service yet. I do not
expect them until next week at the earliest.
Again, I was not necessarily expressing an opinion of how I
thought it should be, but this issue was discussed and previously
decided at large by consensus. For those who do not remember, once the
CART transcripts are available we can go back through the notes as a
reference. There may be other notes/minutes available at this time.
I do not actually anticipate that the CART transcript will resolve this
particular issue one way or the other. I will be delighted to be proved
wrong! Two people can walk away from the same conversation having
understood very different things. A transcript (or recording) does not
change that particular phenomenon!
If it is technically not possible to do, then we need to go back
to the larger committee and revisit this issue, with an explanation and
I agree that this needs to be discussed and decided in committee.

I recall consensus around the point that people should not be able to
edit the wiki anonymously. Jared has implemented a requirement for
If this is not feasible or is no longer the position of the
Committee, that is fine, but it is something we are currently directed
to do, and I do not think we can merely disregard it without going back
to the Committee with an explanation.
I respectfully disagree that this was the position of the committee or
something that this task force were charged to facilitate. I agree that
if this what the Committee wants we owe them an explanation of the
costs. (Namely, that we should not have the expectation that NCAED
provide any further enhancements to teitac.org. Administering
privileges on the Wiki will, at that point, in my professional opinion,
be a full time job. I could be wrong, but I think quote membership
unquote in the subcommittees will be extremely dynamic.)
Jared, please tell us more about the controls that are easy to
implement. For example, can having a validated email address be a
requirement for editing privileges?
