OASIS Continues Mail Server Recovery

Recovery efforts in the aftermath of the OASIS email server crash
continue. Basic functionality for all OASIS Committee and TC-comment
lists has been restored and the subscription manager
<http://www.oasis-open.org/mlmanage/> for public lists is also
functional. IT staff are working now to restore archives and other mail
lists. Members experiencing any difficulties with mail lists (other than

support@oasis-open.org. Updates on the recovery process will be posted



Members Approve WSDM v1.1 as an OASIS Standard

The Web Services Distributed Management (WSDM) v1.1 specification has
been approved as an OASIS Standard. WSDM enables management applications
to be built using Web services, allowing resources to be controlled by
many managers through a single interface.  OASIS congratulates members
of the OASIS WSDM TC and all those who participated in the
implementation, review, and voting process.



Discussion List Forms for UOML

OASIS has opened a public mail list for the discussion of a possible new
OASIS Unstructured Operation Markup Language (UOML) TC. UOML defines an
XML schema for universal document operations. The proposers plan to
contribute UOML to an TC if it is formed, for further review and
refinement. The schema is suitable for operating written documents,
including create, view, modify, query information that can be printed in
paper, e.g. books, magazine, newspaper, office documents, maps,
drawings, blueprints, but is not restricted to these kinds of documents.
Anyone, including OASIS members and non-members, may subscribe to this
list by sending a message to:
