Subject: Re: [chairs] Latest citation master lists available

Thanks, Chet. 

I was looking through a half dozen specs I was involved with a few years back, and see the specifications are littered with some now obsolete normative references. Some for example referenced Draft RFCs that have now become actual RFCs.

As you know, it is always hard to "get the band back together". It was always the intent of the TCs to reference the final specs. None of the changes I imagine involve moving anything to later versions, just the completed versions then being worked on. All of them are currently Committee Specs or OASIS Specs, so touching them could be, well, problematic.

We have gone back and forth on the correct process for this, going back so far, even, as when I was on the TAB.  

do we at last have a process for this?

OASIS TC chairs, 

Compliments of the TAB, the summer editions of the 'IETF RFC Citation List for OASIS Editors' and the 'W3CRecommendation Citation List for OASIS Editors' are now available. Please share as appropriate.  

These files collect the most current citations for IETF RFCs and W3C Recommendations together in individual files and formats them in each organization's preferred manner. To cite a given work in your specification, simply search the text of the file and copy and paste the citation into your document. 

The files are available here: 

You will also find them linked from the TAB's homepage at https://www.oasis-open.org/committees/tab/ and in the list of TC Tools on the TC Administration home page at https://www.oasis-open.org/resources/tcadmin

And don't forget that you can find OASIS Standards and Committee Specifications listed at https://www.oasis-open.org/standards. We are working on a master OASIS citation list to join the two already in place. 



Looking forward to Borderless Cyber 20183-5 Oct, Washington, D.C.
Organized by The World Bank, OASIS, and Georgetown University
