Subject: RE: [courtfiling-cert] Court Filing 1.1 vendor compliance proposal

I suggest that the input from the Certification Subcommittee should be what you have said (with which I fully agree), PLUS a comment indicating that, if the Technical Committee chooses to establish a report-back requirement for vendors who want to associate their implementations with Court Filing specifications, the terms "certified" or "certification" or close synonyms (such as "approved" or "compliant" or "accepted") should be avoided.

Subject: [courtfiling-cert] Court Filing 1.1 vendor compliance proposal


Subcommittee members,


The TC is proposing that vendors may claim to have implemented the Court Filing 1.1 standard if they report to the TC how they implemented the standard and permit the TC to post comments in reaction.  The TC will not officially approve or disapprove the claim, based on arguments of technical correctness, since the 1.1 standard is too vague and incomplete to enforce that approach.


Given the proposal of this subcommittee for certification, that stance is appropriate,.  Nothing short of an open source reference implementation and a formal test suite is sufficient to claim formal compliance, if the philosophy of our proposed certification requirements is adopted.  That position implies a non-ambiguous and functionally complete (or formally segmented) set of standards that enables the test suite to produce a clear yes-or-no result.


John Greacen has asked for our feedback on this issue prior to the TC conference call next Tuesday.  Please respond before then if possible and I will try to fairly summarize the comments for the TC.  Thanks.


Tom Clarke
