Planning for ESIP Summer Meeting session
Highlight current and proposed Testbed activities

Unique Data Identifies - report on activities and successes
Semantic registration of data and services(?)
Move to a portal (drupal) environment to provide better hosting environment for the testbed - connection with a wider ESIP plan for a member management system
Federated Discovery efforts
Information Quality
Interoperability - metadata standards
(new?) Data Stewardship
Testbed Proposal efforts
Reviewed changes to proposal text
Stressing task ownership by other groups within ESIP
Added concept of a Configuration Board for oversight
Added plans for reporting requirements
Reviewed and discussed proposed tasks
Added new Task 1 for the deployment of a drupal-based portal to host Testbed activities
The ESIP Discovery cluster has taken ownership of task 2 for testing Discovery technologies
Information Quality cluster will likely take ownership of task 3 - Tyler will attend their telecon next week
Interoperability & Technology committee will provide Task 4, dealing with metadata topics
Data Stewardship has been approached about either a follow-on for the current Unique Data Identifier effort, or a new stewardship-related task
Iterate with Hook, Rob, Carol and Erin on wording for virtualization and cloud resources in Task 1
Remove Task 6 (semantic web) - will now be incorporated in task 1
Send (hopefully) final version of proposal to the group next week after collecting approval and input from all the other groups involved
