Subject: Re: Fwd: RE: [emergency] RE: [emergency-msg] RE: EDXL-RM forOASIS review / 60-day public review

Thanks Elysa,

I have validated all of the schemas (or schemata), individually and 
collectively, using XMLSPY. That means I tested all of the 
schemas/schemata including the  included/imported schemas/schemata as 
well as the EDXL Common Reference, Types and individual message 
schemas/schemata which use those external schema, such as CIQ and 

So I am satisfied that our work will stand up to testing. The zipped 
group of schemas (schemata) can be found at: 

There is one thing that concerns me. In the specification Appendix A 
it says that "Schemas included in Appendix A are for reference only. 
The normative schemas can be found at 

However, checking that URL resulted in a "Not Found" screen. I 
believe assembling those schemas/schemata at that URL is something 
OASIS will do once we finish our submission, but I thought i should 
mention it because it would be a bad thing for the public to check 
that URL and reach a Not Found message.

I can post a notice of the EDXL-RM Public Review to the Ontolog Forum 
http://ontolog.cim3.net/, which provides at least one well-regarded 
publicly-accessible mailing list.

I have read the correspondence thread below, and I can vouch for this 
specification as co-chair of the Emergency management Messages and 
Notification Subcommittee.
