Hi all,

Rama and Ruth have provided some resources under "Meeting Outcomes" on 
this page: http://wiki.esipfed.org/index.php/Telecon_materials.  Rama 
points us to a model that resulted from the Science Data Management 
workshop, July 2010.  Ruth provides a table of models, which includes a 
column describing Data Management Needs.

So we need to pick a model.  How should we do that?

Do we need to identify some goals of the model?  e.g., be able to 
identify critical intersection points between "data management domains", 
eg provenance, preservation, access/service, documentation, ...  Indeed, 
should we identify those domains?   Being able to logically decompose 
the problem could be helpful.

And/or, as a goal, support making a summary of a literature review...

Or, perhaps I'm over thinking this.  We could just vote on a model, in 
agile practices, "the simple thing that works", which would allow us to 
move forward quickly.

Regardless, we may find we want to change or modify our choice as we 
learn more, so perhaps it doesn't matter a whole lot?

Thoughts on moving forward?
