At the last face to face meetings in April, it was decided to modify the scope of the WBMM charter to better reflect what the group has been doing, and to change the name of the group to Web-based Imaging Management System (WIMS) to avoid possible confusion of WBMM with WBEM, a separate group with an overlapping interest area. A revised charter draft has been generated and, following the current PWG process document, is hereby put up for PWG last call in accord with the formal approval procedures. This last call is to end at the PWG Plenary meeting in Vancouver.
The draft charter is at:
It reflects both an increase in scope to include interest in all imaging equipment management aspects, and a decrease in specificity. Objective dates have been readjusted, although the date of first draft of the specification ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/wbmm/wd/wd-wbmm01-20031121.pdf, is referenced.
Please direct questions and comments on the draft to the WBMM list, wbmm at pwg.org. Please do NOT send comments on the pwg-announce list. A new mailing list will be made up when the charter is approved; until then, we will use the WBMM list.
