	Draft Minutes of the Directory Information Services Infrastructure
		meeting at Atlanta, July 29, 1991

A list of attendees follows the minutes.

The agenda, as stated at the beginning of the meeting, was as follows:

1) Charter Issues
2) Scope of DISI
3) Paper 1 (Weider, Reynolds, Heker)
4) Paper 2 (Lang, Wright)
5) Third paper assignment
6) Transition to Ops group

The way it went:

1) Chris W. mentioned that the charter had been revised as recommended in St. 

2) A freewheeling discussion about the scope of DISI then ensued. Chris W. asked
Steve Kille to speak a bit about the chartered purpose of OSI-DS, and then 
asked the crowd if there were any areas which needed attention which were not
being covered by either DISI or OSI-DS. The general consensus was that there
was as yet no justification for spinning off an operations group. Thus, this 
covered both items 2) and 6).

3) Paper 1 was then mentioned. Chris W. stated that the paper would be 
withdrawn for revisions, as the paper tended to blur the distinction between
the X.500 standard and the Quipu implementation of that standard. Chris 
promised that a revised version of the paper would be out in several

4) Paper 2 was then mentioned. The group publicly thanked Russ Wright and 
Ruth Lang for all the work they'd done on the paper. Several people then 
mentioned that there were some DUAs which did not appear in the paper, and
Russ and Ruth stated that they would include them.

5) Discussion then turned to the third paper. Many people felt that there 
were some other papers which needed to be assigned before the 'Advanced Usages'
paper; one which was agreed upon was a paper 2.5, a 'How to get Connected'
paper.  Steve Kille agreed to post to the list several papers written
by European X.500 groups which could be assimmilated and 
used as a springboard for the new paper; a 'How to join a pilot' paper, and
a 'How to set up a DSA' paper.

6) Point 6 was covered in the discussion of point 2.
