Subject: possible timeline for V1.2
One way to plan KMIP V1.2 would be to start with a target date for when vendors might be able to have the V1.2 functionality available in their products for announcement at a major event. RSA Conference US 2014 (end-Feb 2014) might be a good target for this. We might
End-Feb 2014: product announcements at RSA Conference US
End-Nov 2013: product functionality complete, followed by 3 months Q/A.
End-Aug 2013: product development committed based on Committee Specs, followed by 3 months development
End-Oct 2013: docs approved as OASIS Standards
End-Aug 2013: Committee Specifications approved and published, followed by initiating vote by OASIS membership
End-June 2013: Second public review ends, followed by 2 months for ballots, doc prep etc
End-April 2013: First public review ends, followed by 2 months for addressing comments, initiating second public review (15 days)
Mid-Mar 2013: First public review starts (30 days)
End-Feb 2013: docs approved as Committee drafts (also interop at RSA Conference), followed by 2 weeks to initiate public review
That would give us about 5 months (mid-Sept 2012 through end-Feb 2013) for developing the V1.2 docs and interop testing on V1.2 additions and changes. That’s a lot shorter than for V1.1 (15 months). Is that feasible as a time-box we can work in? Or is that too unrealistic? Is it worthwhile considering product implementations/announcements in determining our target dates?
