Bretz, OpenStack Foundation, welcoming the committee and introducing the project. Steve Nettles, AMP

then provided background information on the JTA process in which the rationale and goals of the JTA were

All documents were shared using GoToMeeting. Steve Nettles and James Hellrung, AMP facilitated the rest

of the meeting proceedings. The committee first discussed the definition of the target practitioners. After

several minutes of discussion, they decided that it would be best to review the draft list of activities and

domains, and revisit developing the definitions after their review of the draft list. There was verbal interaction

by the committee as well as “back channel” IM commentary via GoToMeeting. The committee developed the

initial list of major domains, and decided on a draft list to be used for the next phase of the project.

It was decided that the draft list of activities would be published to Google Drive and the committee would

review it prior to next week’s meeting. Specifically, the committee was tasked to review the complete list of

tasks, assigning each to one area of the revised list of major domains. AMP will revise the spreadsheet of

activities/KSAs for the committee's input for publishing to Google Drive. Audio, screen­shared video, and the

chat log were recorded and can be viewed on Google Drive in this folder: 06 17 2015 Meeting 1. The

meeting adjourned at 5 PM CDT.

Review tasks individually before next meeting.
