Subject: Re: [dita] Re: Meeting Request: Issues About OASIS andOASIS-Approved Publications

Hi Michael --

Thanks. I believe that we will need to agree to disagree about text and subtext on this one. It keeps us young and attending meetings at least!

Hi Stan,

To clarify, I don't think anyone suggested that an OASIS member organization would sue another OASIS member organization. The question was, are there any concerns about a group of OASIS member organizations writing about the products of other companies (or writing about some products but not others, for that matter).

So much for not characterizing the issues in writing :-) But I wanted to correct the characterization of the chit-chat anyway.

Hi Mary --

Spring is in the air. With chit-chat about OASIS member organizations being open to suing other OASIS member organizations and OASIS individual members, it may not be prudent for any individual to characterize the issues in writing (hence the intentional vagueness in my previous email).

Perhaps the best course would be to have the TC next Tuesday "approve" the minutes of our meeting yesterday, thereby providing an appropriate starting place for defining the issues pertinent to the meeting that we'd like to organize with you.

Sorry ... I wish that it were as simple as summarizing the explicit points of debate.

Hi Stan,

 It would be most helpful if you could provide the list of issues in advance so I can make sure to have the right people involved - once I have a better idea I can look at schedules and see what will work for everyone.

Hi Mary --
In the process of reviewing the DITA Help Technologies Guide (attached), the DITA Technical Committee bumped into some issues -- some potentially legal -- that are beyond the scope of our TC. We suspect (and hope) that other TCs or working groups in OASIS have encountered and resolved such issues.
We are hoping that you could set up a concall next week with you and with the following DITA people:
- su-laine.yeo@justsystems.com
- tony.self@hyperwrite.com
- Micheal Priestley
- Don Day
- Stan Doherty
Two goals for the meeting --
1. Review the issues.
2. Identify from the OASIS side of things possible precedents, resources, and solution strategies
