Subject: CCB Contact Persons for BCD/RDR Consistency Restoration Efforts

Dear Colleagues,

This is a circular from CCB, directed towards all who are involved in RDR efforts at GDE. I am asking all leaders of Area/Global/Technical Groups to share this communication with your working members. This email concerns the work to do by all, in ensuring that the contents of RDR and BCD be maintained consistent with each other.

First, a short explanation of the background for those of you who could not attend the RDR authoring session, presided by N.Phinney, during the Vancouver GDE meeting. This session took place on Friday, July 21, in which Nan explained the proposed layout and authoring strategies for RDR. The meeting materials are available at -

At that time Toge was given a chance to explain the relation between RDR and BCD, together with the relation between RDR efforts and CCB. Major conclusions for BCD/CCB with regards to RDR are as follows.

Then Based on 1 and 2, CCB members continue the work to develop a proposal for reorganizing the BCD into entities within the EDMS (Electronic Document Management System) which is hoped to be commissioned after RDR is completed. The time-scale for this task is to produce a concrete CCB proposal by late 2006.

I am attaching a tentative contact sheet which outlines the following.

a. A rough mapping between the RDR chapters and BCD sections. The RDR organization is as per Nan's proposal “RDR Report Discussion” at the URI above.

b. Tentative entries for the primary and secondary CCB contacts.

Several notes:

If you have any general questions, please, do not hesitate to direct them to ml-ccb at
