Hi all,

Thank you, Natacha, for bringing this up. And thanks, Gnangarra, for
quoting our reasoning behind keeping the original name, and to Peter for
the rocket science comparison. ;)

Chris, thank you for highlighting these questions. Yes, there will be some
overlap between the groups, and we consider this an opportunity. Quote from
the WG meta page: “Connection and collaboration between Working Groups will
be essential. It will be up to the Working Group to identify collaboration
needs and opportunities, as well as to actively maintain collaborations
across groups. This will be supported by the Core Team who will act as the
‘backbone support’ of all the Working Groups.”
This also means, that some of the recommendations might have to be
finalized earlier than others, so that other groups can build upon them. We
cannot set a fixed order or timeline for this, but it will get clearer as
soon as the working groups’ start coordinating their work.

The detailed process beyond the reports and consultation across groups is
not yet finalized, partly because we are still in the recruiting process
for the Information & Knowledge Manager. We would also like to work on this
together with the Working Groups instead of setting the process in stone
before it even started.

All the best,
Nicole
