Subject: RE: [chairs] your input on OASIS functionality enhancements

Yet another ...

I have observed an apparent bug with the member roster page.  I had sent email about it some weeks back, but never received any acknowledgement.  The problem manifested again this week, so it doesn't seem to have been addressed in the latest rollout.

The symptom is that when I change the Role and Voting bit of members and submit the changes, some of those changes don't actually get made -- even though the confirmation screen says they all have.  It's somewhat intermittent, but it happens on the order of once out of every three attempts.

Subject: [chairs] your input on OASIS functionality enhancements

TC chairs and secretaries:

As I've done in the past, I would like to ask for your input on the 
infrastructure and functionality provided by OASIS to the TCs.

Last spring we rolled out the new collaborative tools from Kavi, 
including membership roster management, balloting, email lists, document 
repository, action items, etc. While the rollout didn't go as smoothly 
as we had hoped I think that we've got most of the bugs worked out. 
We've recently updated the attendance notification scripts (and as a 
reminder, these rely on your keeping your rosters and meeting attendance 
current), and our IT staff has over the holidays upgraded the Kavi 
software so you should see some significant performance improvements.

We have also recently launched the OASIS Standards Registry for the 
purpose of sharing information about the status of our technical work. 
We're asking our member organizations to submit information about their 
implementations of OASIS TC specifications. We'll also be working on 
synchronizing some aspects of the registry data with the information 
stored in the Kavi database so that we don't have to enter identical 
information in two places.

I've had on my list for some time now the development of a document 
management system, including functionality for persistent URLs, version 
control, checkin/out, etc. I gathered some input from you last spring 
and summer, and we're going to resume putting together the design for 
this system so that we can then start development. It's evident that 
this functionality is needed by our TCs, and we want to be able to 
deliver this soon.

I would like to hear from you what other functionality is crucially 
needed by the TCs for their operation. While our development resources 
are limited and so we must concentrate on those things most important to 
the largest number of our members, we want to hear from you what sorts 
of things we ought to be working on. (We would also be interested in 
hearing about any development resources that any of our member companies 
could contribute to our infrastructure efforts.)

Please reply to this list or to me directly over the next couple of 
weeks so that we on the OASIS staff can make our development plans for 
the rest of the year.
