Two comments on the RDA Council Meeting Minutes, one general and one specific:

1. I commend the Council for publishing the minutes. RDA will succeed or not based on community involvement and transparency will be an important component in developing that involvement.

2. One of the elements in the Financial Sustainability section is 'Events costs.' This, from my point of view, is a no brainer - charge the attendees to cover the meeting costs. This is SOP for IETF, W3C, etc. Perhaps Bob Kahn or Scott Brim could give a little IETF history at the March meeting if useful. NSF, as I recall, supported the IETF meetings until they became sufficiently popular that they could be self-supporting. W3C, again to the best of my memory, charged from the start. The fact that there is a waiting list for the March Plenary would seem to support this approach.
