Subject: Update on going to ISO
Greetings, I checked with the members of V1 (the US national committee to JTC 1, SC34) on the route to take the OpenOffice OASIS specification to ISO. OASIS is a full liason to SC34 so once the OpenOffice is in the proper format, it can go directly to DIS (Draft International Standard stage). Re-formatting will be required. Same experience as RELAX-NG, which also went from an OASIS to ISO in SC34. I have been told there were a number of transformation stylesheets prepared in connection with that effort, but I suspect they will be guidance as to what we need to do, since the OpenOffice specification is in OpenOffice format. Both Jim Mason, convenor of SC34 (was around pre-SGML and following) as well as Jon Bosak thought that SC34 would be a good place for the OpenOffice Format Specification. I think you can count on the support of the rest of V1 in terms of assisting in sheparding the OpenOffice Specification through the ISO process. Hope everyone is having a great day!
