The Vex2 committee

At the 7th USVLBI meeting at Haystack, Nov 3-4, 2009,a committee was proposed to undertake the task of updating the vex file definition to properly handle upcoming hardware. The group of 5 individuals will be responsible for drafting the new document. We encourage community involvement but ask that input from the community be provided via the vex2 community notepad, not through direct editing of the vex2 defining document. We have also established an e-mail list for more informal discussion by interested people. You can subscribe to the list and get more information at VEX2 discussion mail listinfo.
