    • Needs to be discussed with John Quinn.
    • Next meeting targeted for June 5th
    • How would the structure of the WGs change? Would Tooling still have liaisons? Andy believes so. While typically the liaisons report on Work Groups' tooling requirements but they could also convey concerns on web site services. They don’t anticipate decreasing the number of cochairs but would provide better backup for one another. Matt wonders further if meeting once per week can address all the business of both groups; ES only meets every other week so it would be a change from three meetings every two weeks to two meetings every two weeks. Tooling has also been finishing up earlier with the change in approach to project management with reporting and liaison. How busy is ES? They have more of a monitoring role where Tooling WG has had more of a hands-on role. May alternate agendas by week initially and work towards merging. Cultural differences between the Work Groups must be acknowledged and may be better addressed in this manner.
    • Wilfred expresses his feeling that there is no real reason for the two groups to merge if they are functioning properly. Andy offers his perspective from the Steering Division. ES struggles sometimes and has reached co-chair overload and Tooling is mostly attended by Tooling co-chairs, Lynn, Wilfred, and recently Matt. Phoenix WGM had an interim cochair and cut its hosted sessions in half. Wilfred notes that if the FHIR area being of great interest and the Tooling WG not appropriately involved we will continue to lose interest to other pursuits. Andy notes that FHIR, the specification, is essentially a web site and so is a perfect crossover between Tooling and ES. We have not been successful in getting Lloyd to attend many Tooling calls.
    • Dennis moves Tooling merge with ES, and Lynn seconds. Wilfred abstains; passes 3/0/1.
  • There being no project updates, meeting adjourned at 2:48 PM
