service will rotate data to North/South and East/West directions.
Responsible: No immediate action required, incorporate into a SOA framework when time allows.
Constitute a small working group/task force focused on evaluating
and assessing outward-looking DMS software. Decide on group membership
and charge. To be done by email.
Create a statement regarding the serious negative impact of any
reduction in the DMS technical staff, and supporting the need
for a modest
increase in this staff.
Responsible: Flanagan and Casey
The DMSSC remains concerned about the amount of time high-level
staff at the DMS have to spend answering basic user questions.
The DMS should explore options for (1) tracking user inquiries;
(2) providing a user forum where users can answer each other's
questions and find answers to common questions (cf. GMT user forum);
this might be in the form of a wiki page. The DMS should suggest
1-2 possibilities to address (1) and (2).
Responsible: Casey and Ahern
Bring the proposed policy statement for re-distribution of IRIS
data to the COCOM for their approval.
Write and submit a citable published article for the DMS, analogous
to the EOS articles for PASSCAL and GSN.
Responsible: Wiens, Ahern
Update the strategic plan for DMS.
Begin the development new DMS web pages within the context
of the new IRIS site. Form a user sub-committee for
advice on the content.
