From PAP22 report we have:
A discussion then followed about roles, which included IALA’s information management process. It was agreed that, ideally, the task of maintaining the dictionary should move away from the Committees to a dictionary editor and might be combined with the role of IT manager, when funding permits and depending on the skill sets of the person involved.
This led to the suggestion that the aim should be to first locate an editor and an assistant editor; the latter could be someone recently retired.
It was agreed that if an editor can be identified and funded, then the Dictionary group should meet with him / her to decide how to proceed.
At PAP23 Paul Ridgway agreed to have a close look at the Dictionary with a view of getting the editing process started.
At this point in time (20. May 2012) the following act as practical editors:
- Omar Frits Eriksson
- Paul Ridgway
We will keep this arrangement until the editor and assistant editor have been put in place:
(From Omar 20120520: Adrian Wilkins is ready to do some practical editing work, I just need to get in contact with him.)
