Subject: OASIS News: 28 August 2006

28 August 2006

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


OASIS Updates Its TC Process

The OASIS TC Process, the principal rules for standards development in
OASIS' technical committees, have been amended by the OASIS Board of
Directors. There are several significant process improvements suggested
by members, as well as some clarifications. The rules for starting a new
OASIS technical committee have been improved. Also, the review period
for a new TC proposal is now 30 days, to permit wider review. Compliant
proposals will be posted within five days of receipt, and member
comments invited for two weeks, as a part of the preparations for
launch. While the proposers still will define the committee's scope,
this increased transparency should assist in optimizing new projects and
driving re-use and convergence. OASIS has also added an official method
for adopting "Approved Errata" for existing approved standards, which
will allow committees to give official sanction to errata lists, when
they wish, short of issuing a new version of a spec. The changes are
effective immediately.
