I’m very pleased to be able to report that at their workshop yesterday, the IEEE/P1622 committee approved the use of EML as the basis for their future standards work.  This is a very significant  decision  because it almost certainly means that the USA EAC (Election Assistance Commission) will in future specify EML/P1622 as the standard to used in USA e-enabled elections. The first of these will be for the UOCAVA (The Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Assistance in Voting Act) system scheduled for the Presidential elections in 2012.


Whilst this is very good news it does at the same time put the pressure on us to maintain EML to the highest standard, get the new release out in the required time, and IMO get EML into ISO without too much further delay.  To that end I would like to schedule a TC call to review the current work by David and Neal on v7, agree a timetable for that, and our strategy for going forward with IEEE and ISO.  Could please indicate in the Doodle poll  your availability for a call and I’ll let you know the outcome asap - http://doodle.com/qeiuznfvmspby387
