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


OASIS Staff Work to Restore Mail List Functionality

OASIS IT staff continue to work on restoring full email functionality in
the aftermath of last week's server crash. Committee and comment mail
lists are now functioning. Full access to the mail list archives and
functionality for other lists residing on the oasis-open.org, xml.org,
coverpages.org, and ebxml.org domains will be restored as soon as
possible. OASIS deeply regrets the impact of this situation on its
members and their work. Updates on service restoration will be posted at
the members homepage.

Members of OASIS announced plans to standardize the interchange of

List Representation TC will operate under the "RF on Limited Terms" mode
of the OASIS IPR Policy, and its first meeting will take place on
28 August by teleconference. New members are welcome.
