Hi all,

The TSC has approved Al Stone as UNIX Platform Task Group Chair
just in time for today’s meeting. Congrats, Al. It’s great to have
you on board.

Thanks. I think :).

As a very first step, does there currently exist an approved charter
and/or plan for the UNIX platform task group?

There's a very brief statement in the member's area of

Charter: manage the UNIX-class platform specification. This working
group will start by defining a subset of this platform specification
that both allows compatibility with existing implementations
and extensibility for the future needs.

This seems a bit too brief, and maybe not much of a plan.
yes. When the group was proposed (almost 18 months back), the idea was
to first come up with subset of specifications (SBI, PLIC) under unix
platform specification. We have SBI v0.2 specification and draft PLIC
spec available now. I think it's time that it should be revised to
include more details and vision that aligns with a platform spec.

on with our conversation during the last meeting, do we need to write
something up and get it agreed to, at least amongst ourselves?

Or did I just not look in the right place?
