15 Minutes: Approaches and Participation: (Carry-over from last time)
oBIX has already been under way for a year, so there is some culture already in place on the committee that must be relearned for OASIS. Experience has shown that not all members are ready to live in the nitty-gritty of XML, and that other perspectives are necessary to make oBIX be what it should. There is also a strongly felt concern that we provide useful recommendations to users of oBIX as to when and how to use oBIX. We want to get a strong perspective on use cases that Owners Operators, and Tenants would like to get from oBIX, to make sure we continually re-focus on delivering usable value with oBIX. We have also had some participation from several of the 50 different vertical controls markets identified as likely to be in a building. 

To this end, we want to consider the sub-committee structure for oBIX. These subcommittees would allow the more focused members to meet more often on areas of concern, while summarizing back to the overall committee less frequently.

As a starting point, I propose:

oBIX meets once a month.

- The XML Standards sub-committee meets once a week is up and running under Aaron Hansen

-	The Applications and Guidelines sub-committee will discuss when and when not to use oBIX for building controls projects.

-	Roadmap sub-committee As oBIX exposes controls to the enterprise, it grants the enterprise permission to interact with those control systems. This committee will focus on developing use cases and prioritizing development efforts by the other subcommittees.

Other committees:
- Special interest groups meetings (SIGs) for controls vertical industries to clarify the proper abstraction level for each vertical industry. Id prefer to have more than one vendor on each.  We also should look to existing XML/WSDL from the participants as a starting point.

- Interfaces to define relationships between oBIX and related facilities XML dialects (to date, UDDI, GBXML, EBXML, WSDM)

Of course, the actual subcommittee structure will be determined during open meetings, but something consistent with this structure is anticipated.
