Subject: RE: [chairs] Re: OASIS IPR policy ... (transition timing)

Thanks for the clarifications - this is most helpful.
I'll make some enquiries also to help facilitate this as I can using the channels you have provided.
At least two of the TCs I'm involved with do have members working with OSI right now.
Thanks, DW

The OASIS Board of Directors has an Outreach Committee that is following up on actions such as you have suggested.  The Outreach Committee has had dialog with executives from Apache Software Foundation last year.  The ASF has numerous projects underway and completed that implement various OASIS Standards. We also engaged with the Open Source Applications Foundation and had their Chairman, Mitch Kapor, deliver a keynote at last year's OASIS Symposium. It is our plan for the Outreach Committee to engage with appropriate representatives at the Open Source Initiative.  If there are any specific areas of the current IPR Policy that might me revised based on feedback from OSI or other groups, the OASIS Board's IPR Policy Committee can look into that.
Again, specific suggestions for revision of the IPR Policy, or any other OASIS policy, can be discussed on the oasis-member-discuss@lists.oasis-open.org or sent directly to the oasis-board-comment@lists.oasis-open.org eList.  We will also have feedback time at the Annual General Members meeting on 10 May during the Symposium week in San Francisco for member comments.

So we're just ignoring the issue with OSI and figuring that noone will want to have an OSI license for OASIS implementations anyway? 
I recall a public statement by OASIS that they were going to work with OSI on this.  I guess that's all it was?
Thanks, DW

    David:  I think you are incorrectly attributing the speed with which
TCs transition to some perceived issue with the 2005 IPR Policy.

    Most existing TCs elected to save the task of an IPR Transition Policy
conversion for a down-time project.  As we reach the 1-year mid-point of
the 2-year conversion period, you will see more conversions.  However, some
TCs also may choose not to go through the drill, simply because they
anticipate completing their work and their natural lifespan before April
2007. Nothing wrong with that, either.

    Some pre-2005 TCs have acted *early* to take on the new IPR Policy,
because they see virtue in its improved clarity and much stronger mandatory
license provisions.   So do I.

   Regards  Jamie
