Subject: New OASIS Navigation

OASIS TC chairs,
Thank you all for your cooperation on bringing consistency and brevity to
our TC descriptions. The alphabetical list of TCs at
http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/committees.php is now much more useful.

The second step in enhancing OASIS web site navigation will be to make it
easier for visitors to locate specific OASIS TCs and to get an idea of the
breadth of OASIS work and relationships between TCs. The current, extremely
lengthy, left vertical navigation on the OASIS public pages lists more than
60 TCs, some by topic, some by TC acronym, some by spec name, and some by
spec acronym. For visitors new to OASIS, finding a specific TC or getting a
sense for the scope of OASIS technical work can be very challenging. 

To address these issues, OASIS is revising our public left nav, so that
visitors can locate a TC by name (on the alphabetical list) and by category
of work.

With guidance from the TAB, OASIS has grouped all of our TCs into nine
categories. The revised left nav will list categories with links to pages
that provide descriptions for TCs directly related to that category. 

You can get a preview of the categories and how the new left nav will appear
at our dev site, http://www.oasis-open.org/home/index_nav.php. 

Our goal is to feature each TC on the one category that is most descriptive
of its work. In a few unavoidable cases, TCs are listed in more than one
category to accommodate what we anticipate will be multiple common-sense
assumptions by visitors. Please let me know if you feel your TC has been
incorrectly assigned to a category by COB on Monday. We'll transition to the
new nav as soon as possible next week.

Again, we appreciate your assistance in making the OASIS web site a better
showcase of your work.
