Jeyaraman, Tolbert, Walsh named OASIS Distinguished Contributors

At the Annual General Meeting of members, Ram Jeyaraman, John Tolbert, and Norm Walsh were recognized for their significant contributions to the open standards community.
Ram Jeyaraman of Microsoft played a major role in bringing AMQP to OASIS and now co-chairs the AMQP TC and serves on the AMQP Steering Committee. He also co-chairs the OData TC and is active in WS-I.
John Tolbert of The Boeing Company is pivotal in defining identity management and security standards. One of the first SAML adopters, he helped SAML become the basis for identity federation in the aerospace industry. He is also active in XACML.

Norm Walsh is known as the driving force behind DocBook, one of the most widely used publishing schemas in the industry--and the most frequently downloaded OASIS Standard of all time.

XLIFF 2.0 becomes OASIS Standard

Members have approved the XML Localisation Interchange File Format (XLIFF) version 2.0 as an OASIS Standard. XLIFF defines a specification for the interchange of localisable software and document-based objects and related metadata. Congratulations to the XLIFF TC chair, Bryan Schnabel, and to all TC participants including representatives of Foundational Sponsors, IBM and Microsoft, and Sponsors, Oracle, SDL, and Symantec, for this accomplishment.

TC proposers include representatives of OASIS Sponsors, Hoyos Labs, Intel, and Red Hat, and others. Abbie Barbir of Bank of America serves as the convener; the TC chair(s) will be elected at the first meeting, which will be held 23 Sept in Geneva. (A teleconference bridge will be provided for TC members who are unable to attend in person.) All interested parties are invited to participate; contact join@oasis-open.org for details.
