Administrative issues

Approval of July 8, 2015 minutes
The July 8, 2015 minutes were approved with no objections.

Patent policy
Ernst offered to show the patent policy, but presentation was unnecessary since the attendees are all regulars.

P1076 coordination
Ernst was in contact with Jim Lewis (Chair of the IEEE P1076 WG)and will continue the coordination with him. They will discuss the issues how to coordinate the revisions of the LRMs. Both WGs have the same timeline. One issue is how to handle new packages. It has to be clarified whether the packages should be provided as open-source software or part of the standard.

Project discussion

LRM status
For details regarding the status see the meeting slides. The P1076.1-201X LRM editing information is provided in the Member-only area. Alain prepared the Baseline State IEEE 1076.1-201x/BL0.1 document dated August 11, 2015. One revision shall be provided after finishing mandatory changes. Afterwards, new versions with new functionality will be created. It shall be distinguished between working versions and published versions that may be visible to other people.
