Subject: Motion to merge CybOX into STIX

Hi, everybody -

Given that there was overwhelming consensus with the proposal that was
presented during last week's TC calls to merge CybOX into STIX, the
next step is to open a ballot measure.

(For those of you who were unable to make the TC calls, you can review
the slide deck [0] for background.)

This community proposal has been thoroughly discussed by the
co-chairs, document editors, and the more active contributors in the
TC. After careful consideration and debate we feel that this merger
has significant advantages for the TC in terms of interoperability,
document management, and improved market perception of STIX.

We're *just* talking about renaming CybOX to "STIX Cyber Observables"
and merging the documents. The CybOX SC will continue its development
efforts under a new name. External standards will still be able to
leverage the standard formerly known as CybOX by simply referring to
the appropriate subsection of the STIX standard.

Supporters of this resolution
  * Aharon Chernin (Soltra)
  * Allan Thomson (LookingGlass)
  * Alexander Foley (Bank of America)
  * Bret Jordon (Blue Coat)
  * Christian Hunt (New Context)
  * Daniel Riedel (New Context)
  * David Eilken (Soltra)
  * Ivan Kirillov (MITRE)
  * Jason Keirstead (IBM)
  * John-Mark Gurney (New Context)
  * John Wunder (MITRE)
  * Mark Davidson (Soltra)
  * Patrick Maroney (Integrated Networking Technologies)
  * Richard Struse (DHS)
  * Trey Darley (Kingfisher Operations)

And with that, I present to you the formal resolution text as agreed
upon by the co-chairs and hereby motion to put the proposal to a
formal TC-wide vote. Can I get a second to the motion?

The OASIS CTI TC will merge CybOX (as a TC work product) into STIX and
rename it to "STIX Cyber Observables" (or "SCO" for short.) The term
"CybOX" will be deprecated in STIX 2.0. The CTI CybOX SC will be
renamed to the "CTI SCO SC".
