OASIS deliverables are provided in three formats:  editable source, PDF 
and HTML or XHTML.  Among those three there should be something to please

Approved Errata apply to OASIS Standards.  Only ODF 1.0 and ODF 1.1 have 
the status of an OASIS Standard.  ODF 1.0 (second edition) has the status 
of Committee Specification.  If we wanted to updated ODF 1.0 (second 
edition) we could do that as well, through a slightly different procedure, 
yielding an updated Committee Specification.  The ISO/IEC version will 
need to be corrected via the JTC1 process, based on the OASIS errata, once 
it is approved.

Although in theory we could propose separate errata documents for all 
three OASIS texts, we need to ask whether that would be a worthwhile 
effort, and balance that with the needed effort in completing ODF 1.2 
where all of these errors, and many others are addressed.

But certainly anyone who wishes to join the ODF TC with the object of 
working on ODF 1.0 errata is more than welcome.  We could set up a 
subcommittee for that effort if needed.  I note that such document format 
errata committees in JTC1/SC34 seem to attract large crowds, 20-25 people, 
larger by several times than the entire active membership of the OASIS ODF 
TC.  But until that day comes, ODF 1.2 work will dominate the TC's agenda.
