Subject: FW: Press Release to Announce OpenDocument as OASIS Standard

I'm forwarding this at Carol Geyer's request to the TC members.




OASIS OpenDocument TC Members:

The following message was sent to the OASIS PR Group regarding plans for the press release announcing OpenDocument as an OASIS
Standard. All TC members should: 
1) note the quote deadline and target distribution date for the OASIS release;
2) be sure to have a representative subscribed to the OASIS PR Group
3) refrain from commenting to the press or issuing any company releases on this matter until after the OASIS press release is
distributed; refer any press inquiries you receive to me, so I can coordinate our response;
4) send me drafts of any separate, company press releases you may wish to issue regarding OpenDocument, so I can fact check and
assist as needed;
5) contact andy.moir@oasis-open.org to recommend any additional TC participants

Subject: Press Release to Announce OpenDocument as OASIS Standard


OASIS Members:

The Consortium is in the process of drafting a press release to announce the approval of OpenDocument as an OASIS Standard.  We have
targeted Wednesday, 18 May, for distribution.

While OASIS deeply appreciates the contributions of all members to our technical work, only Foundational Sponsors and Sponsor
members elect to receive promotional benefits, such as inclusion in announcements directed to the press. 

The OpenDocument OASIS Standard press release, therefore, will feature the following statement:

"OpenDocument was developed by members of the OASIS Open Document Format for Office Applications Technical Committee, which includes
representatives of IBM, Sun Microsystems, and others."

*Any* Sponsor member of OASIS may submit a quote in support of OpenDocument's approval as an OASIS Standard--you do not have to be a
member of the OASIS OpenDocument TC. If you represent a Foundational Sponsor or Sponsor member of OASIS, and you would like to send
a quote, please email that to me, including a name and title at your company to whom the quote can be attributed.

If your organization is not a Sponsor member of OASIS, and you would like to submit a quote for this press release, please contact
Scott McGrath (scott.mcgrath@oasis-open.org) immediately for information on upgrading your membership to take advantage of this
promotional benefit.

For details on OpenDocument see:


**Our absolute deadline for accepting Sponsor quotes for the press release is noon ET Monday, 16 May.**
