>OASIS Members:
>The OASIS Technical Advisory Board (TAB) has asked that the OASIS

>     OASIS Artifact Standard Identification Scheme for Metadata
>and provide comments during the period ending 1 March 2006 (details below).
>This document, approved by the TAB, proposes rules for how OASIS artifacts 
>(e.g. specifications, schemas, WSDL) are named, what metadata must be 
>associated with each artifact, consistent filenames and persistent (and 
>consistent) URIs for artifacts (incorporating some of the required 
>metadata), and updates to the OASIS URN spaces.
>This work furthers goals for consistent naming, persistent URIs, and the 
>efficiency of data and document management across OASIS. Many of the 
>recommendations are already in effect, e.g. in the current document 
>templates. Others are guidance for work in progress, e.g. persistent URIs 
>for accessing OASIS artifacts.
>Please carefully consider the proposed requirements, as their 
>implementation will facilitate pending improvements in OASIS document 
>management, process automation, and expression of namespaces.
>While this document is written as a set of requirements, the use of this 
>document is recommended and not mandated. After this second General 
>Membership review in February 2006, we expect that the OASIS Technical 
>Advisory Board will approve a future version as a contribution to ongoing 
>OASIS policy discussions.
>Earlier versions of this document, under various names, have been 
>circulated to the OASIS Chairs email list and (as the "Artifact 
>Identification Requirements") went through a General Membership Review 
>cycle in July 2005.
