Re: No vector TG meeting tomorrow - preparing to start public review


David Horner
 

I am disappointed that the meeting was cancelled.

I am concerned that jnk0le's contributions/concerns, in particular, have been dismissed and to the extent that they were objections to the draft have been categorized as not substantial.

The meeting  was a final verification/certification opportunity. A ratification of sorts.

I have found our meetings productive and collectively raised concerns and insights that have improved the V extension and its documentation.

I intended to raise some concerns that are difficult to express as an "issue" and hoped to get the groups input more dynamically.

Given the meeting is cancelled, I will type these in as best I can as issues.

I apologize that I did not anticipate the cancellation of the meeting, and thus that I let my life interfere  with providing these concerns as issues.

[Our son suddenly was at the top of the waiting list for long term care placement, which means in Ontario that you drop everything to make it work. And further, with covid restrictions we needed to ensure, on admission, he has completely set up as he is now quarantined for 14 day. Also that  they messed up his medication and I spent the better part of a day, and the night it happened, getting that corrected. He has Dopamine Responsive Dystonia and takes levo/carbadopaCR and pramipexole. Thus, they thought he has Parkinsons and concentrated his medications to daytime hours, leaving him without his medication for 12 hours over night. It took a full 36 hours before he was stabilized and free of adverse effects. And this is happening on the background of us selling our house, downsizing, moving, new rental accommodation set up and shut off old services and legal matters, including document preps and signing papers. Once again, I apologize, I know of others in worse constraints that are on the lists etc. 24/7. So it is just me, given others can contribute when their life is hectic.]


Contributing during public review does not prepare the document for public consumption. I believe cancelling the meeting is a lost opportunity to do that.

There have been no substantial objections raised on the v1.0-rc1 draft, so I will cancel the meeting tomorrow.

There are some minor suggestions and edits (thank you!), and I will incorporate these into the v1.0 version which we’ll freeze for public review, hopefully starting in a day or at most a few days.

Remember, you can still comment during public review.
