Thanks to everyone who made last week's Borderless Cyber event at the World Bank such a success. Cyberwire published coverage of the entire program:

Now---how you can become involved in our next Borderless event…
Plans are underway for two more Borderless Cyber events in the first half of 2016. We're looking at European venues now. If you're interested in being part of the next Borderless Cyber Program Committee, contact events@oasis-open.org.

OASIS introduces Open Repositories for TCs

OASIS Open Repositories are a new option for TCs that want to encourage open source development in support of their standardization. Each OASIS Open Repository will be a public GitHub repository, created by OASIS staff, at the request of a TC. Anyone will be able to participate in an Open Repository, without fee or membership requirements. Open Repository contents will be created by public contributions under an open source license designated by the TC. Feedback on the program is welcome.

DITA TC publishes Committee Specification

Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA) 1.3 defines both document types for authoring and organizing topic-oriented information and mechanisms for combining, extending, and constraining document types. This release of DITA is optimized for application developers, technical communicators, and implementers and users.

Public reviews underway for TOSCA, XMILE, and DITA

TOSCA Simple Profile in YAML 1.0 specifies a rendering of TOSCA to provide a more accessible syntax and more concise, incremental expressiveness of the TOSCA DSL. The Profile is designed to minimize the learning curve and speed the adoption of TOSCA to portably describe cloud applications. This public review ends 20 Oct.

XML Interchange Language for System Dynamics (XMILE) 1.0 defines an open XML protocol for the sharing, interoperability, and reuse of System Dynamics models and simulations. System Dynamics is an interactive environment for simulating the impact of policy on complex ecosystems.
