Subject: Member review of draft Artifact ID Requirements, by 27 July

To:  OASIS members

    The OASIS Technical Advisory Board (TAB) has prepared a draft set of Artifact Identification Requirements for potential use by OASIS TCs, as a more ordered method for assigning names and URIs to OASIS technical work products.   Comment from OASIS members is welcome, and would be most useful between now and 27 July, when the TAB plans to review all comments and finalize the draft.  
    The URI and method for comments is described below, in a message from TAB Quality Subcommittee chair Bill Cox, who along with his colleagues has contributed a great deal of thoughtful work to this proposal.  This draft, in turn, builds on earlier work from a number of contributors led by Eve Maler, resulting in somewhat similar guidelines that have been used  voluntarily by some OASIS TCs for several years. 
    It is proposed that, when completed, these rules would become the normative naming practices for TC outputs, so input from our user communities is essential.   Please let us have the benefit of your comments.

Dear Colleagues: 
The OASIS Technical Advisory Board and its Quality Subcommittee have worked this year to update and elaborate a set of informal document naming guidelines that parts of the OASIS  community have used for several years. Earlier drafts  have been shared with the chairs list;  this draft is now synchronized with the new IPR Policy and TC Process.

The current TC Process rules permit us to apply uniform naming rules more broadly to OASIS TC work product,  in order to promote uniformity and facilitate the successful use of finding tools. 
The current Working Draft 15 of new proposed OASIS Artifact Identification Requirements ("AIR") has been posted to our [oasis-member-discuss] space, at the URIs below.  The TAB has asked that we make it available for member review during the month of July.   

Please encourage editors and other active TC members to review this document, as we will all be affected by the greater formalization of artifact naming rules.

AIR working draft 15:  http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/download.php/13344/ArtifactIdentificationRequirements-v1.0-wd-15.pdf

The TAB also has provided a short preface and list of questions:

Review comments on the AIR should be posted by 27 July 2005 to:

While registered OASIS members need not join that group to send comments, they must join if they wish to subscribe and thus receive copies of each response.  The publicly-readable archive of this list is located at:
the above URIs can be accessed by anyone.

We appreciate your comments.
