Subject: RE: EML v7.0


Let's put a marker down, say in October, to start a v7.1 after IEEE have finished their current round of work and we will then push that version all the way through to ISO.  Anything emerging after that will have to wait.

At least now getting the 3 Statements of Use should be easier and reduce the timescale.

Some annoying bugs we need to fix. Slipped through the previous review.

Yes - the ISO process could be smoother.  We should be able to enter into it - and then certify the current version.

I thought things had changed there - that certainly is how the W3C is working their relationship with ISO.

We need to make these changes though - obviously I'm not rushing to have to do v7.1 - but cannot see way around this.

Hopefully we can get through the current round of work with IEEE. This is the really important piece - on accelerated schedule for this November use  The rest of it is likely to take much longer - so will give us gap to get the v7.1 through OASIS.

Chances are when you've done these fixes something else will occur so the roundabout continues to roll.  Somehow we've got to stop it for at least 6-9 months to get it through to OASIS Standard and then ISO.  Not sure when that window is going to emerge particularly with the ongoing IEEE work.
