My suggestion is that we form a new working group responsible for
setting up an agreement with DLF/CLIR, with the end result subject to
ratification by a community vote.
Anybody with interest and experience to share should feel free to step
forward, but I especially suggest that members of current and past
conference planning and budget committees consider volunteering as
well as folks who may have participated on either side of a fiscal
sponsorship arrangement. I also suggest that folks from the Code4Lib
Journal participate as well, especially given that there is both
income and potential expenses related to the journal.
On a house-keeping note, I have verified with Bethany Nowviskie of
CLIR/DLF that she and Sharon Ivy Weiss are the primary contacts on
their end. On another house-keeping note, there is a time slot
allocated for fiscal continuity discussions during the 2018 conference
that could be used by such a working group for meetings or
presentations as it sees fit.
I can help convene an initial meeting of such a working group, but one
of its first tasks presumably will include choosing a chair.
I further suggest that we use this email thread to further flesh out
what the charge and expected process of the working group would be.
