Subject: Re: [office] a question on the ISO standardization process


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!
