It also folds in the survey feedback, , as well.
        • The draft roadmap has a number of open questions. We reviewed the roadmap and discussed options for approval. Some members would like a few more days to review. Tom will post the options on aperi-dev prior to a vote this week. We are still targeting to have this completed by 10/12.
      • Road map vote
        • As part of our processed we vote on roadmap changes. As we are not ready to close on a completely booked roadmap, we discussed taking a vote on different levels of completion for each release:
          1. For 4Q07, a yes vote means this will be booked
          2. For 2Q08, a yes vote means we will gain agreement on the content for this timeframe by the end of October.
          3. For follow on activities, we will gain agreement on the priority line items by the end of October.
        • The team agreed to pursue the above voting scenario.
