Subject: status update


I informed you on Tuesday afternoon that we had backtracked from our 
initial launch. After discussions with the folks at Kavi, and after 
further configuration and testing of the system we have tentatively 
scheduled another launch for tomorrow (Friday) evening. The timing is 
deliberately over an evening and weekend to avoid any problems during 
business hours. We'll have more details on this later.

In the meantime I'd like to remind you (again) to please update your TC 
and SC rosters. We're getting quite a number of complaints from people 
who can't post to the mail lists; this is because you haven't designated 
them as members on your rosters. Jamie Clark will be following up with 
you on this, and we'll be CC'ing you on replies to people who can't 
post. If you have problems getting in to set up your roster please 
remember first that until the relaunch we're using the 
http://kavi.oasis-open.org URL (rather than www.oasis...). If you have 
problems with your password please contact Scott McGrath.

We are aware of problems with the email archives. Thanks to all of you 
who have taken the time to bring this to our attention. The problem has 
to do with integrating the old archives from elistX into the new email 
system running on the Kavi server. We're working on this and hope to 
have this completed soon. Specific errors should be reported to Jeff Lomas.

Also, I'm ocassionally getting queries from TC vice-chairs and 
secretaries and SC chairs regarding status, etc. I've been sending 
status notes and Kavi information to just the chairs, and counting on 
you to forward this information as appropriate to specific people in 
your TCs who need to know. While it would be easy to send these out as 
general announcements to all OASIS members we'd rather not innundate all 
of members with this traffic; it's bad enough that I'm subjecting all of 
you to this :-) We'll make a general announcement to the members when 
the system is up and running and ready for them to get their passwords 
and login.

I appreciate your patience through all of this, and apologize again for 
this not going as smoothly as we had hoped. Other than specific 
questions, which should go to the people I've listed above, please feel 
free to contact me with concerns and I'll do my best to follow up.
