GMOD Architecture Working Group
The Architecture Working Group will make recommendations to the GMOD consortium on any cross-project policies which can lead to a more cohesive software project. The group will take into consideration:
- Interoperability with other GMOD components
- Platform independence
GMOD will announce the recommendations and provide a repository for the recommendations on the website. Future developers will be pointed to these recommendations.
The group will discuss which recommendations are needed and decide on an issue on which to make a recommendation. One or two recommendations at a time will be chosen to work on. The timeline will obviously be very different for each recommendation – some will be short with near consensus early on and will just be a matter of formalizing. Others will be more contentious and require more work to gain consensus on.
Timeline of a recommendation
Two to three weeks: Discussion of the current problem, specify exactly what the proposals should address. Any use cases are developed at this time. At the end of this time a request for proposals will go out.
Two weeks: Time for members of the working group to generate one or more proposed solutions to a problem. These solutions are formally written and submitted to the group.
Three weeks: Discuss and iterate on one or more proposals, come to a consensus. At the end of this time, one person will be delegated to 'close' the proposal by formalizing any suggested modifications to the recommendation. After one last review the proposal is formally submitted to GMOD.
Communication will take place primarily over email on the group list. One conference call per month can be expected and we will work out a time among the group that will be our standard time for a conference call. We will try to limit conference calls to one hour per month per active recommendation.
