Today's discussion was all spoken, so there is no transcript of the chat. The reference document was Mark Conrad's comments on the "Requirements for Bodies" document at and the responses to them circulated by email.

The following list summarises the decisions for each of Mark Conrad's comments.

MC1 - title already says candidate digital repositories on the PDF file
MC3 - change title of metrics document by means of an ISO RID
MC4 - clause deleted
MC6 - say "candidate TFRs" or just "digital repositories" if just searching for
best practice - use w caution
MC7 - agreed
MC9 - agreed remove tag "TDR" - agreed remove that half of the sentence and put
"... with TDR-specific additions and guidance"

MC20 - OK, drop
MC21 - keep this point, possibly reword
MC22 - Add "However" at start of second sentence and replace "TDR" by "repository"

MC52 - "digital repositories"

MC54 - delete 8.2.1
MC56 - delete 8.4.1
MC58 - "The following TDR-specific requirements apply" - make clear initial
audit committee can vary - need to decide how to express this

MC63 - keep for now
MC64 - use "audit" as suggested
