Subject: RE: [ebxml-bp] Re: Please raise any objections to closing the ebXML-BP TC now

Hi Jamie,


The contributions to ebCore were in the email Chet mentioned, apparently.


ebCore  agreed to take on maintenance issues for ebBP. I believe that Kathryn documented that in minutes of ebCore.


ebBP has not met since late 2008 or early 2009 and in ebCore we have not had many (any?) maintenance requests beyond those that existed at the intended time of transition.


ebCore is working on maintenance of ebCPPA. Pim is heading up that effort.


These are,at any rate, my recollections.


The handoff was up to policies of the time. IMO, it was just an oversight that the official closing did not occur. I checked that ebCPPA was closed, but somehow ebBP was left open and I did not –until recently—notice that it had been left open.


This is just correction of an ancient clerical error or so it seems to me.

Has the ebXML-BP TC acted to designate the ebXML Core TC as its maintenance TC?  As our rules allow?   I think it may have done so ... but if not, it should consider holding that vote before closing, so as to make the IPR rights of the "core" TVCV to conduct future maintenance more certain.

Members of the ebXML Business Process TC, 


I have been notified that the TC took actions to close in 2008 but that the process never completed. There is reference in emails to the decision in meetings to close the TC and transition its work and there is proposed ballot language but the only concrete record I can find is the email contributing the documents with ebBP maintenance and enhancement issues to the ebCore TC on 03 November 2008. See https://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/ebxml-bp/200811/msg00000.html 


Nevertheless, it does appear that the intent of the TC was to close and TC Administration is empowered to close a TC "that fails to conduct at least one Quorate Meeting or conduct any Work Product Ballots during any six month period." See https://www.oasis-open.org/policies-guidelines/tc-process#closingTC


Therefore, unless I hear any objections raised, I will carry out the actions needed to close the TC next Thursday, 06 February 2014. Please let me know before then if you have any concerns about taking this action. 


As is standard OASIS policy, the assets of the TC will remain publicly avaiable though no longer active. The TC's ebxml-bp-comment@lists.oasis-open.org will remain open so that former members can receive any outside feedback or questions in the future.
