Subject: OASIS NEWS 10.20.04

20 October 2004

Welcome to OASIS News, a weekly update of announcements, accomplishments,
and activities for the international standards consortium.

Review Revised OASIS Membership Agreement Draft

All members are asked to review proposed revisions to the OASIS Membership
Agreement and provide feedback. The revisions seek to meet the contractual
expectations from a variety of cultures and jurisdictions. Instead of the
current click-through application form, the new Membership Agreement will
require a physical or electronic signature. The renewal process promises to
be much more streamlined, eliminating the requirement of a formal legal
review every year.  Like the proposed revisions to the OASIS IPR Policy and
Technical Process, the end result of these changes to the Membership
Agreement will ensure the safety of adopting OASIS Standards around the


OASIS Standard Vote on UBL and WS-Reliability Ends Soon

OASIS members are strongly encouraged to cast ballots on two Committee
Drafts that have been submitted for consideration as OASIS Standards;
Universal Business Language (UBL) v1.0 and WS-Reliability v1.1. UBL defines
a common XML library of business documents (purchase orders, invoices, etc).
WS-Reliability establishes an interoperable way to guarantee message
delivery to applications or Web services. Voting ends 31 Oct 2004.


Join New OASIS Discussion List on ebXML Adoption

A new discussion list has been created to explore the possibility of

participants will decide if there is sufficient interest to form a TC. To
subscribe to the discussion list, send a message to:


Join OASIS DCML Member Section

The OASIS DCML Member Section (MS) is seeking participation from all those
interested in advancing the Data Center Markup Language (DCML). Every
organization that joins or renews membership in OASIS has the option to
designate support for one or more MSs. Members are encouraged to join the
OASIS DCML MS if they find benefit in funding DCML work through an
allocation of a portion of their usual OASIS dues and voting on MS ballots.
OASIS members need not select an MS in order to participate in its related
TCs related, nor will selecting an MS restrict involvement in any way. The
deadline to declare affiliation with the OASIS DCML MS is 30 Oct; following
that date, members may join the OASIS DCML MS -- or any other MS -- at their
annual membership renewal date.

Posting Company New to XML.org

One of the benefits of OASIS Sponsor membership is the ability to distribute
company news and announcements via XML.org. Press releases and other
information sent to the OASIS "Announce" mailing list will be automatically
posted on the XML.org homepage, as well as linked to the member's web site.
To post information, send a plain text e-mail containing your announcement
and a link to the full release to: announce@lists.oasis-open.org


Briefings with Robin Cover at XML 2004
