Review and Approve Meeting Minutes and Decisions by Attendees

Review and Approve Meeting Minutes and Decisions by non-attendees

Kevin Jennings: Do not agree. Per the recording of the meeting, the discussion of LCS-2016-018 did not reach consensus. Two times the chair called for a vote on this LCS and both times the chair was the only person who indicated support for the LCS followed by someone else interjecting for additional discussion. Both times that discussion then drifted off to discussion of LCS-2016-072 and -072a. I believe the reason for this drift is because without -072 and -072a there is no new use case for -018 which brings into question why -018 should be approved at all. I suggest bringing -018 back for formal voting and consensus with the knowledge that the chair has stated that he does not intend to allow 72/72a to be approved thereby removing the only use case for -018.
