        1. The thought was to make an attempt to define some sort of a model for templates under the GSWG
        2. Do we have the governance of the governance stack, of the technology stack, so on and so forth - that was the triggering point
    1. Clarifying discussion on above #5 (10 mins)
      1. Drummond Reed - This is interesting - gives different perspective on the deliverables. Another way of envisaging the templates and meta models.
      2. The two stacks under ToIP explained by Drummond - Meta Model of ToIP Stack - Tech stack defines technical interoperability from top to bottom - similar to the one under governance stack
      3. Eric Drury - I thought of looking at governance model at each layer specifically
      4. Drummond - One of the key component is principles - idea is "Principles guide policies”
      5. Eric Drury - We need to provide some context on what is happening under the governance frameworks. What will be the highest level of inheritance?
      6. Eric Welton - Inheritance does not necessarily mean we have to have a pyramid.
      7. Eric Drury - How is the way forward for us to continue contributing for the meta model.
      8. Drummond - We may be can form a focused group which can start working on the meta models.
      9. Scott Perry - Work being done by Eric needs a home and I think Governance Architecture TF is a place.
    2. Action - It was acknowledged that we need to have a Meta Models TF (more like a focused group) formed which will take this thought to next level to derive meta models for the GF layers -
