Subject: RE: [election-services] Wikipedia


There is a standard page format for OASIS standards, and there is a group page for OASIS.

So all we have to do is clone the OASIS format - and then fill in the details for EML.

I've done a few of these (surprise!?!) - so perhaps I can get the guist of this started and then you can fill in refinements and details from there.  All anyone needs is to signup with a valid email address to establish yourself as a contributor.  They have content nazis monitoring everything these days - so best to wait till the main structure is in place before starting editing - else they will clobber it.

I'll see if I can get the jump started this evening.

Thanks, DW

Thanks for drawing this to our attention.  It hadn't occurred to me that we would have an entry and I don't know who put it there.   I'll take a closer look and add some more detail. 
Where else - good question?  After this revelation then anywhere goes I suppose.  Suggestions welcomed.

This is the extent of the current Wikipedia entry:
The Election Markup Language (EML) is an OASIS standard for "the structured interchange among hardware, software, and service providers who engage in any aspect of providing election or voter services to public or private organizations"[1]
Dr. Ron Rivest, renowned computer scientist and member of the Technical Guidelines Development Committee of the Election Assistance Commission was quoted as saying "EML is an example of the kind of consensus-based, publicly available common format that enables the exchange of electronic records between different components in election systems."[2]
Did anyone here write that? Should we add some more, such as where it is being used? Are there other places we should put similar information?
