Dea WG-II members,

please find this kind offer from Chad Trabant (IRIS) to manage the FDSN StationXML schema
throug GitHub. I fully support the concept and like to thank Chad for his offer to remain the
gatekeeper for incorporating the changes in the schema. Please let us know if you have other
ideas.

__________________________________________________________________________________________________

In order to make the editing and change management of the FDSN StationXML schema a more collaborative
exercise I have created a an "organizational" account for the FDSN and then a repository for the StationXML
schema:

https://github.com/FDSN/StationXML

This allows individuals and organizations to create modifications of the schema as branches. The changes
can then be proposed to and reviewed by FDSN WG II in their final form before being accepted. In addition,
this will allow for open and transparent tracking of issues and proposed changes.

As for my IRIS-supported involvement, I do not mind continuing to act as the gatekeeper for merging changes
approved by WG II into the master branch, tagging and generating point releases as guided by the WG if this
is what the WG desires. This framework allows more than one gatekeeper if this is ever needed or desired.
Importantly, this system will allow individuals/organizations to create patches/modifications to the schema,
effectively sharing the responsibility of editing, which are then ready for review.

    Not surprisingly I support the approach Chad is suggesting… it would become a shared responsibility within the FDSN, a good idea

    +1 This is a great idea.

    Is there any chance that the quakeml schema could also be put there? The
    current site hosting quakeml, quake.ethz.ch/quakeml, is only available via
    https, and the certificate is self-signed and expired 4 years ago. So when
    you open it in the browser, you get a scarey warning that says:

    quake.ethz.ch uses an invalid security certificate.

    The certificate is not trusted because it is self-signed.
    The certificate expired on 12/17/11, 8:18 AM. The current time is 5/1/15,
    3:10 PM.

    (Error code: sec_error_unknown_issuer)

    Putting the quakeml schema on github as well would be a real benefit I
    think.

    thanks
    Philip
