Subject: RosCAP proposal
Dear fellow volunteers (Gennaro, Sue, Amy) and potential volunteers (the rest of you),
During a quick CAP workshop teleconference a week ago, Chris and I were charged with
getting the ball rolling on what we require to get a RosCAP proposal submitted in the next
round. Attached in the following email are some of our thoughts and suggestions on these
matters. Although I'll send these attachments immediately after this email, these
files may take a little longer to come through as the rosexec mailing list can get stuck
with files >100KB.
First is a Strategic Planning document outlining what needs to get done.
Second is a Proposal Framework document together with a diagram of the 4-year CAP term.
Amy, Sue, and Gennaro have already volunteered to join Chris and I in what I am calling
the RosCAP Proposal Guidance Committee. If there are any others of you who would like to
join, you're welcome. The tasks of this temporary committee are described in the
Strategic Planning file. Several major final decisions will need to be made by this
committee, and soon.
There will need to be numerous subcommittees set up shortly, depending on the specifics of
the final proposal framework. These subcommittees will each need to iron out various
details. Some of the RosCAP components are inevitable, so we may as well start thinking
about which ones we each would each like to be involved with, and what other expertise we
should recruit to help out - also consider beyond the usual Rosaceae GGB community.
Chris and I have more notes and diagrams on much of this (sorry Chris, I didn't
include the diagram on Team Project Workflow here - I didn't have time tonight to
adjust it with my additional comments), but in any case, many of the specific details can
be determined within the appropriate subcommittees.
If you'd like to be on the proposal guidance committee, let Chris and I know ASAP,
and we'll create a focused mailing list. By the end of this week, please let us know
what you agree on and what you don't in the attached documents. We'll circulate
comments among proposal guidance committee members, and continue discussions. The aim is
to have subcommittees set up by the end of the month, and the Team Project Guidance
Committee set up even earlier so that the call can be put out to the community for team
project proposals by the end of month.
Hope you've all had a great summer!
C & C
