Notes from Chris Lynnes:

·      Jerry Pan and I agreed to volunteer for a joint Rave on our Simple
Subset Wizard and his OpenSearch server for THREDDS Data Server.  We both
feel that they are too simple to warrant a Rave on their own, and they do
work together.

·      Much of the discussion revolved around the Intellectual Commons
Platform.  Questions like: how much / how strong a peer review?  How do we
get enough submissions?  There was some idea of publishing preprint-style
articles on it, but then also How do we deal with AGU's Dual Publication
