Updated with info on consultation calls - 22nd June
All proposals have now been responded to by the IATI tech team, for inclusion or not in the 2.03 upgrade - see title of and comment in each proposal. Further comments and discussion on these proposals are still welcome, including on proposals marked for exclusion! The current stage in the upgrade timeline is consultation with the community.
How to comment on a proposal:
You can engage in the consultation by replying to existing topics. Please make sure you only respond to within those topics and not in google docs or elsewhere.
Subscribe to this sub-category to receive notifications about any new posts and keep up-to-date with discussions.
Timeline for 2.03 upgrade process
We will be holding consultation calls on 2.03 proposals between Monday 3 and Wednesday 5 July, which anyone can join to discuss proposals in more detail.
Please do also continue to reply within the proposal on Discuss as these calls are only a means of supplementing ongoing discussions at this stage of the upgrade process, for those who prefer to talk! We particularly encourage people who have not been involved so far to join the calls.
The aim of these calls is to discuss and clarify existing proposals together (or request re-instatement of proposals which have been initially rejected) - if you would like to join one or more of these calls please read any existing discussions on the relevant proposal and bring specific requests and suggestions for amendments, as proposals that are going forward will then be refined and worked up into finished examples in the next stage.
We will write up a summary/bullet points of each discussion and then post this together with a list of who attended the call, in addition to any proposed amendments to existing proposals.
Structure of the call:
While proposals for consultations can be put forward for any topic, we will try and combine them according to the headings we have used so far in the index.
How to request discussion of a proposal on a consultation call
On each proposal there is now a new reply (dated 22 June) by the IATI tech team - if you would like that proposal to be discussed on a consultation call please click the heart symbol on the bottom right hand side of that post, which will 'Like' the post on your behalf. We will then track which proposals have been Liked and advertise calls (via Doodle polls) to be held either on 3, 4 or 5 July.
If there are no Likes for a proposal it will not be included in a consultation call.
Please remember you can continue discussing a proposal on Discuss even if you can’t or don’t want to join a call!
Deadlines for this stage are as follows
By end of Mon 26 June - 'Like' the IATI tech team post on the relevant proposal
On Tues 27 June based on which proposals have been Liked the IATI tech team will then group proposals and set up Doodle polls for the calls to be held 3-5 July.
