Subject: Fwd: FW: [pubrel] Press Release to Announce CGM Open MS and WebCGM TC

[...Note please -- attachment is MS CONFIDENTIAL...]

CGM Open Member Section --

We are aiming for Aug. 2 (week from Monday) for a press release (PR) about the TC formation, WebCGM 2.0 work, etc.  Please see attached (CONFIDENTIAL) draft, and the below appended message from Carol Geyer.

Please note two things in Carol's message, for your possible attention:

1.) all CGMO MS Sponsor members are listed in the PR (may opt out, if desired);
2.) Any CGMO MS Sponsor member is entitled to make a quote associated with the release (per standard OASIS policy for any PR any subgroup).

Presently, the draft PR has quotes from three people in their official capacities:  OASIS CEO, CGMO MS Chair, WebCGM TC Chair.  I asked Carol how it would work if any Sponsor wanted to provide the allowed company quote.  She clarified:

At 04:13 PM 7/23/2004 -0400, Carol Geyer wrote:
[...] all the Sponsor members can provide a separate, company-specific quote.
The quote we have from Dave [for example] is on behalf of the TC. Boeing may provide
another quote, if they choose, that talks about why Boeing is involved in
this work. It is less confusing if they attribute their company quote to
someone other than Dave, but that's their option too.

If there are just a few Sponsor quotes, I'll fold them into the release
(under a subhead); if there are several, we can use them in a separate quote
sheet that's attached to the main release.

Finally, note the Friday, July 30, deadline.

I just sent this standard notification to the OASIS PR Group
(http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/tc_home.php?wg_abbrev=pubrel). Please
forward it to the OASIS CGM Open WebCGM TC members and to the MS members,
just so everyone is aware of the opportunity.

Subject: [pubrel] Press Release to Announce CGM Open MS and WebCGM TC


OASIS Members:

The Consortium is in the process of drafting a press release to announce the
formation of the OASIS CGM Open Member Section and the OASIS CGM Open WebCGM
TC. We have targeted Monday, 2 August 2004, for distribution.

While OASIS deeply appreciates the contributions of all members to our
technical work, we have a policy to list only Sponsor member companies in
announcements directed to the press. The higher Sponsor member dues
underwrite the cost of promotional activities such as press releases.

The OASIS CGM Open WebCGM press release, therefore, will include the
following statement:

"Members of the OASIS CGM Open Member Section include representatives of
Airbus, Arbortext, Auto-trol Technology, The Boeing Company, US National
Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), <INSERT SPONSORS> and others."

If your organization's name is listed above and you would prefer *not* to be
mentioned in the press release, please let me know.

Sponsor-level members that would like to send a quote on behalf of their
organization in support of the OASIS CGM Open WebCGM TC may email that to
me. Please include a name and title at your company to whom the quote can be
attributed. A representative of your organization must join the TC prior to
the release date.

If your organization is not a Sponsor member, and you would like to be
featured as a major participant in the OASIS CGM Open WebCGM TC, please
contact Scott McGrath (scott.mcgrath@oasis-open.org) for information on
upgrading your membership to take advantage of this promotional benefit.

**Our deadline for accepting Sponsor quotes for the press release is 5:00 pm
US EST, COB Friday, 30 July.**
