Dear WG2 / WG3 communities
(apologies for cross-posting)

During recent WG meetings in Montreal, a consensus emerges that we need a better structure for decision making within the FDSN WGs, allowing all members to have some clarity and transparency about how decisions are being made.

A number of us have drafted the following statement at
We would like to take this to the FDSN plenary meeting and vote this through on Wednesday.

Please note the priority is to introduce a framework for decision making. This version may not be perfect, but it will be a starting point. I expect if there are issues that arise, this document can be revised again in Hyderabad in 2012.

Comments are welcome until end of day Tuesday, either through this mailing list, or if you would like to provide actual text edits, directly send to

Sorry for the very short time to respond, but the time between WG and plenary meetings is short, and if we miss the opportunity we wait another 2 years.

Best regards,

John, Javier, Chad, Peter, Jerry.
