If you recall back to comment resolution on
Tuesday, Dave floated the idea of holding at least a
1/2 day adhoc in Dallas to work on the State Machine.
To do this, we need to limit the comments or
presentations (or both) to something that will fit in
1.5 – 2 days. That is around 150 non-EZ comments and 8
presentations, based on our past meetings. Dave asked
for you to think about how to limit ourselves and that
we would discuss it.
I would like to have that discussion here, since we
forgot to do it in the closing business.
One way is to insist that there are no
presentations that are not addressing baseline, a
remedy to a comment or something assigned to a
‘champion’ as a progress blocking topic during the
closing business yesterday. Another way is to withhold
comments that you know are controversial in nature
where you haven’t yet completed the work to drive
consensus. My last remark wold be the thing that Dave
emphasized all during comment resolution. Ensure you
have made a ‘good’ comment. Copy the text to which the
comment refers, make extra effort to provide a concise
solution. If you can’t, save that comment for D1.5.
Anyone else have thoughts on how to minimize the
comment resolution portion of Dallas to give dedicated
face-to-face time for work on the State Machines?
