Acceptance of Minutes of the August, the 30th meeting
- The attending TC members unanimously accepted the minutes.

rework proposal if possible
   - done
- Lars Oppermann: Preparation of MIME type registration.
   - in progress

Image Filter Proposal
An alignment of the existing image filter proposal with SVG seems not to 
be possible. The image filter proposal will be postponed.

Roadmap Discussions
The TC discussed the roadmap proposed in 
and http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/office/200409/msg00015.html.

The TC discussed the relation of an OASIS Open Office standard to 
further committee drafts: The TC will regularly update the committee 
drafts, and will include proposed enhancements to the format into these 
drafts. Selected committee drafts (including the upcoming draft) will be 
submitted to OASIS for standard balloting. Once accepted, these OASIS 
standards will be the base specification on which subsequent work is 
based. It is expected that committee drafts will be submitted to OASIS 
standard when substantial changes have accumulated. It is also expected 
that implementers will follow the current OASIS standard, and refer to 
the committee drafts only if they require features not yet contained in 
the standard but only in a committee draft.

The TC agreed to the proposed roadmap for getting an OSIS standard. The 
TC further agreed to deliver committee drafts every 6 months, namely end 
of March and end of September.

Michael will prepare a TC charter clarification proposal containing 
these roadmap, so that the TC can formally agree on it.

ISO standardization
The TC appreciated the idea of taking the Open Office format to ISO when 
it has been approved as an OASIS standard. The formal decision to 
initiate this shall take place when the Open Office format has been 
approved as OASIS standard, since this is a requirement for submitting 
TC work to other organizations.

The TC further discussed whether ISO has additional documentation 
requirements that the Open Office specification must meet. Patrick will 
clarify this.

New Action Items
Michael Brauer: Prepare TC charter clarification
Patrick Durusau: Check ISO documentation requirements.
