Subject: Initial Working Draft Document Instance for EDXL-DE-v2.0

TC Members,

Attached you will find an initial Working Draft document
instance to serve as a starting point and template for
EDXL-DE-v2.0.  Further revisions to this Work Product must be
maintained as a Working Draft, following procedures
detailed in the TC Handbook [1].

Working Drafts should be made available by uploading the
document(s) to the TC's Kavi document repository, or
(provisionally/temporarily) to the TC's Subversion (SVN)
repository, if SVN has been activated [2].

For each revision, you will need to:

1) increment the Working Draft revision (number) from 01 to 02,
    03, 04 etc., as successive Working Drafts are produced;
    the revision number needs to be updated in at the top
    of the document in the stage identifier (Working Draft ##)
    and in the document identifier within the page footer
    (EDXL-DE-v2.0-wd01, EDXL-DE-v2.0-wd02, etc)

2) supply the relevant publication/release/upload date
    for each successive Working Draft instance, using the
    prescribed date format: DD Month YYYY; the date
    needs to be updated at the top of the document
    (just below the stage identifier, Working Draft ##)
    and in the page footer

3) provide text for a document Abstract, updating this
    summary with successive revisions to provide an
    accurate description of the subject matter, goals,
    scope, etc

4) keep the Acknowledgments (Appendix A) and Revision
    History (Appendix C) up-to-date with each WD revision

5) consult the OASIS Naming Directives document when
    creating new artifacts that may be part of the Work
    Product (e.g., image files, XML schemas), observing
    the rules for name characters in files and proposed
    directories, and for proposed URIs/namespaces [3]

When the TC votes [4] to approve a Working Draft as a Committee
Draft (CSD or CND), the Chair must submit a "Committee
Specification Draft Creation and Upload Request" accessible
on the TC Administration Requests Page [5].  Upon receipt
of this form, the TC Administrator will process the Work
Product for official publication in the OASIS Library
as a Committee Draft (http://docs.oasis-open.org/), including
addition of the requisite cover page metadata and other
boilerplate information, as described in the TC Handbook. [6]

Please let me know if you have any questions.
