Subject: Creating an XML.org Focus Area

Members of OASIS ebXML TCs: 

As you may be aware, OASIS is in the process of launching a series of
XML.org Focus Areas based on specific OASIS Standards. The DITA XML.org
Focus Area (http://dita.xml.org) was launched in March, and a Focus Area
on UDDI is underway. 

Focus Areas build and enable communities-of-support for OASIS Standards,
providing technical and educational materials, collaborative workspaces,
and discussion areas. They each contain three major sections of content:

1) Knowledge Base (KB) pages, which provide a reliable technical and
educational background on the standard;

2) Today pages, which serve as a community bulletin board and directory
where readers share topical information and recommend useful resources
(e.g., news, events, testimonials, case studies, product listings,
blogs, forums, polls);

3) Wiki pages, which enable the public to dynamically collaborate on
documents and add new pages to the site through a wiki interface. 
A Focus Area covering the suite of ebXML standards presents an excellent
opportunity to transition the current ebxml.org web site to a more
dynamic platform that would allow greater community interaction and

The first step is to identify a team of volunteers to serve on an
Editorial Board for the site. The attached guidelines document provides
more information on what would be involved in that. 

If you would be interested in working on an ebXML Focus Area Editorial
Board and/or sponsoring the site, or if you have any questions or
suggestions on this project, please contact me.
