Subject: Conformance - getting to a standard

Craig sent me a note yesterday asking about conformance. In the years since 1.0, there have been a number of rules changes about standards within OASIS. Among other things, Our current document should be a working draft of  v1.1, giving us a document name similar to:


OBIX 1.1 WD 14.


It should also be prepared using the current templates…





One  part of the new template is that every specification must include conformance statements. The Conformance chapter is the last normative section  of each specification. Guidance on Conformance follows:


Formal Conformance Requirements


TAB Guidance




RFC 2119 (how to say SHOULD and MAY)




Are they white papers, or are they case studies…




Dealing with changes in Scope

2.11 TC Charter Clarification

A TC may clarify its Charter only for the purpose of removing ambiguity or for narrowing the scope of the topic defined by the Charter. The TC may not broaden or otherwise change its scope of the topic of work. The list of deliverables may be expanded only if the new deliverables are within the scope of the topic.

Approval for clarification shall require a Special Majority Vote of the TC. The clarification of the Charter may occur no earlier than the first meeting of the TC. The TC Chair shall notify the TC Administrator that a motion has been made to clarify the Charter, and the TC Administrator shall set up and conduct the ballot.
