Subject: Proposed Charter for OASIS WSS-M TC


To OASIS Members:

  A draft TC charter has been submitted to establish the OASIS Web Services Security Maintenance (WSS-M) Technical Committee (below). In accordance with the OASIS TC Process Policy section 2.2:
(http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/process-2009-07-30.php#formation) the proposed charter is hereby submitted for comment. The comment period shall remain open until 11:45 pm ET on 18 August 2010.

  OASIS maintains a mailing list for the purpose of submitting comments on proposed charters. Any OASIS member may post to this list by sending email to:
mailto:oasis-charter-discuss@lists.oasis-open.org. All messages will be publicly archived at:
http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/oasis-charter-discuss/. Members who wish to receive emails must join the group by selecting "join group" on the group home page:
http://www.oasis-open.org/apps/org/workgroup/oasis-charter-discuss/. Employees of organizational members do not require primary representative approval to subscribe to the oasis-charter-discuss e-mail.

  A telephone conference will be held among the Convener, the OASIS TC Administrator, and those proposers who wish to attend within four days of the close of the comment period (this is tentatively scheduled for Thursday, 19 August at 11am PT/2pm ET). The announcement and call-in information will be noted on the OASIS Charter Discuss Group Calendar.

  We encourage member comment and ask that you note the name of the proposed TC (WSS-M) in the subject line of your email message.
