3. *Public and Member Feedback* and *Mantis Issues*.

We have a lot of specifications!  Completing and maintaining them is important, so streamlining participation with process-based procedures is import.

During last week's meeting we had a good review of the detailed summaries for each of these activities.  They are now collected as an entry-level overview page at

Please review this page.  Following this week's discussion, if ready, we can ask that it be added to the menu lists as entry point for Mantis.

We also talked through the need to have each draft and proposed specification listed on the selection menu in the comments form.
