Subject: Re: [kmip] observers participating in OASIS mettings

The only people who can participate in any way at a TC Meeting are  
those listed on the roster. That is, to attend as an observer, one  
must be an OASIS member and be listed on the TC Roster. In order to be  
able to speak at a meeting one must be on the roster as a Member,  
Voting Member, Chair or Secretary.

Only TC Members may post to the TC mailing list; observers are  
subscribed and receive the emails but cannot post. Observers wishing  
to provide input must use the comment facility.

There is a member post on this topic here:



Mary P McRae
Director, Standards Development
Technical Committee Administrator
OASIS: Advancing open standards for the information society

phone: 1.603.232.9090

Standards are like parachutes: they work best when they're open.
