- Community management of the centralized NAAN registry
- Grant funding of software development projects to create a next-generation open-source ARK resolver and management application
- Community partners to run redundant global ARK resolvers
|Group membership, Meeting frequency, Feedback|
Since goals have clarified and the direction is now slightly different, we would like to confirm that all current members want to continue, that the monthly meeting frequency is still appropriate, and gather feedback on our activities to date to drive any useful changes.
Update on Working Groups
Goal: Community NAAN Registry administration
Sustainability working group retired
The effort to share management of the NAAN registry is moving forward and it seems reasonable to charge a new working group for this activity, to provide a framework around how it will operate.
|Goal: Grant funding for technical projects|
Given the community feedback that there was interest in open-source tools in the ARK space (creating a next-generation ARK resolver and management application) we are asking the AG to help in:
|Goal: Redundant global ARK resolvers|
While many ARK users have their own local infrastructure, there are some that use N2T as a global ARK resolver. This creates a single point of failure for resolution of some ARK identifiers. We believe that it is necessary and appropriate to find partners who are willing to run redundant ARK resolvers for global use that can provide this service in the event that N2T is not available.
