Working Group Charter Template
This is a template for an Identity Commons working group charter. To propose a working group, simply add a link to the table of working groups on the FrontPage, then copy this template, fill it out, and post it as the new linked page. See the posted charter pages for examples.
Proposed-Name-Here Working Group
A concise summary of the purpose of the working group, similar in function to the summary of Identity Commons itself -- see the PurposeAndPrinciples. Note that the purpose of the working group must be consistent with the overall purpose of Identity Commons.
Every working group 'inherits' the general principles of Identity Commons itself -- see PurposeAndPrinciples. This section should list any additional operating principles of the working group, i.e., scope limitations, how membership will be managed, how it will be governed, how Stewards Council representatives are chosen, when its work will be considered complete, etc. Note that these cannot be in conflict with the general Identity Commons principles.
Requirements of Participation and How to Join
Each working group is required by the PurposeAndPrinciples to state its requirements for participation, if any. It should also provide instructions for how to join the working group.
Licenses and/or Restrictions on Usage of Work Product
Each working group is required by the PurposeAndPrinciples to state any licenses and/or restrictions that may exist for the usage of its work product.
Current Deliverables and Milestones
List any deliverables planned or proposed by the working group together with the current proposed schedule/milestones.
Current Meeting Schedule
List any regular calls or meetings, if any, plus any special upcoming meetings.
Directly list current participants and participant categories (if any), and keep updated as membership evolves. Or, if the working group is a formal organization or otherwise maintains its own Web-accessible directory of members, link to that directory.
Current Stewards Council Representative and Alternate
List the active and alternative SC representatives. Describe how reps and alternates are chosen.
List links to all Web-accessible resources, i.e., the working group's own wiki front page, website, mailing lists, or other repositories.
