Subject: New OASIS Discussion List: oiic-formation-discuss

     OASIS members have requested that we open a new discussion list, regarding
a possible new OASIS ODF Implementation, Interoperability and Conformance (IIC)
TC. The proposal conforms to our rules and is set forth below. Standards always
are improved by broad participation. OASIS encourages open discussions about
possible new TCs, by offering a dedicated e-mail list for 90 days, upon member
request. The address of this list will be:


Anyone, including OASIS members and non-members, may subscribe to this list in
order to discuss the merits and possibility of the proposed project.  The list
is now open, and can be joined by sending a message to:

oiic-formation-discuss-subscribe@lists.oasis-open.org. [1]

The discussion list is governed by Section 2.1 of the OASIS TC Process [2], and
may last up to 90 days.  Typically, participants in the list will determine
whether there is sufficient interest to form an OASIS TC, and then collaborate
on a draft TC charter for submission. Only subscribers to the list will have the
ability to post to it. If you do not wish to subscribe, but would like to
monitor the discussion, archives of the list will be visible at [3].

Please feel free to forward this announcement to any other appropriate lists.
OASIS is an open standards organization, and welcomes your feedback. We look
forward to assisting parties interested in joining the community of
implementers, technologists, academics and end-users contributing to open
standardization for e-business and information exchange.

(1) The name of the discussion list, which shall not be the same as the name of
the list in which the TC itself shall operate if formed. 

The proposed discussion list name is "oiic-formation". 
(2) A preliminary statement of scope for the TC whose formation the list is
intended to discuss. 

It is the intent of the ODF Implementation, Interoperability and Conformance
(IIC) TC to provide a means for software implementors and service providers to
create applications which adhere to the ODF specification and are able to
interoperate. As such, the purpose of the IIC TC includes the following: 
1.	To publish test suites of ODF for applications of ODF to check their
conformance with the Standard and to confirm their interoperability; 
2.	To provide feedback, where necessary, to the ODF TC on ways in which the
standard could improve interoperability; 
3.	To produce a set of implementation guidelines; 
4.	To define interoperability with related standards by the creation of
profiles or technical reports; 
5.	To coordinate, in conjunction with the ODF Adoption TC,  OASIS InterOp
demos related to ODF;
The IIC TC may also liaise with other standard bodies whose work is leveraged in
present or future ODF specifications. These include, but are not limited to, the
W3C and ISO/IEC JTC1/SC34. 

(3) The names, electronic mail addresses, and OASIS Organizational or Individual
Membership affiliations of the three or more Eligible Persons proposing to
create the discussion list.
