Subject: Re: [office] a question on the ISO standardization process
Charles, There is a defined schedule for the ISO process on ODF. Briefly summarized that schedule is as follows: 1. 1 May 2006: ODF ISO Votes/Comments due. 2. Sometime in May, 2006, ODF ISO Votes/Comments distributed by ISO. 3. Not less than 2 1/2 months after #2, ISO ODF Ballot Resolution Meeting 4. Not more than 30 days after #3, final ISO ODF text issued by Convener of Ballot Resolution Meeting and Project Editor Hope that helps. Hope you are looking forward to a great weekend!
