    Last August, I initiated a discussion regarding policy options for reporting high resolution ground-based imagery of
    Earth satellites to SeeSat-L:
    
    http://satobs.org/seesat/Aug-2010/0134.html
    
    Of the few subscribers who responded, a small majority favoured Option 2, with varying degrees of support for the
    requirement that raw frames be made available. Ralf Vandebergh - the only hi-res imager who responded - was among those
    who argued for more or less the status quo.
    
    The ongoing disagreement between Thierry Legault and Ralf Vandebergh reinforces my belief that a fairly rigorous
    reporting standard would be beneficial. In the above-linked message, I made some suggestions for reporting which I would
    like to see as the starting point of discussion, involving all who are interested in advancing the state of the art. 
    
    I would especially like for the hi-res imagers to work together to develop a reporting standard, whether they discuss it
    here, or elsewhere. Perhaps they could jointly seek guidance from one or more of the professionals in the field.
