The third, recurring, phase of this working group will continue the ongoing maintenance of identified core components in the community, via planned sprints and communication with product owners. Working group members will plan and participate in these sprints, as well as communicate that planning and welcome contributions from the larger community. The core components supported for this phase are identified within the following: http://samvera.github.io/core_components.html. It should further be noted that our efforts shall be coordinated with the appropriate Samvera governance bodies.
During the sustaining phase of this working group, the group will re-evaluate the WG charter and re-evaluate the core components list on a twice yearly basis roughly aligning with Spring Partner meetings and Samvera Connect in Fall.
