Subject: RE: [office] ISO/IEC 26300
Because ISO 26300 came in as a PAS from OASIS, and OASIS had made the text freely available, ISO is bound by OASIS's policy. We also made note of this status when the final text was sent to ISO, and we announced our intent to make the text freely available. Accordingly, both SC34 and OASIS can make the final PDR (or, indeed, the XML source) available on their Web sites. Aside from SC34's simply having the final document in its register, we could also make some special link on our Web site. What OASIS does is up to OASIS. Of course, if someone really wants a paper copy of what Geneva prints, they'll have to pay the price. (It used to be that ISO CS sent a paper copy to the designated ISO editor, but I don't know whether they still do that or not. Except for SGML, I don't think I have official-from-Geneva copies of anything SC34 and its predecessors have published in the 25 years I've been in this business. jim -----Original Message----- From: Patrick Durusau [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] Sent: Friday, December 01, 2006 10:18 AM To: email@example.com Cc: James Bryce Clark; Mary McRae; Michael Brauer; firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com Subject: Re: [office] ISO/IEC 26300 Rob, Hmmm, can't say I have ever heard of a "cost free" standard out of ISO. ISO has complained to Jim Mason about his posting final versions of SC 34 standards to his website. He does so on the basis that any activity that the US Gov. participates in means the result is a royalty free publication. Since he is behind heavily guarded walls at a place that makes nuclear weapons, ISO has not pressed the issue. ;-) I can ask Jim about posting the final version to one of his webservers. Would that work for you? Hope you are looking forward to a great weekend!
