Maintenance Iteration 7

We’re planning the next Maintenance Iteration, so stay tuned for dates and invitations.

Recording of the CDR Implementation Call

In this week’s CDR Implementation Call there were a number of questions around why the Data Standards Body does not publish a recording of the weekly Call. We provided an answer at the time but feel that it’s worth putting our response on record for everyone.

We feel the act of recording and publishing the Call could inhibit the relatively informal and conversational tone we try to maintain. If participants were aware that everything they said was going to be permanently publicly available there would probably be a lot less willingness to provide fully open and comprehensive feedback – and we’d all be worse off as a result.

Having said that, we do genuinely welcome feedback – in regards to the Implementation Call or anything else. If you do have ideas you’d like to see us try please reach out to contact@consumerdatastandards.gov.au and we’ll be in touch.
