To OASIS Members:

This is a Call For Vote to approve the following Committee Specification set as an OASIS Standard:

The Committee Specification has had its required 60 day public review, and the review materials were sent out to the
membership of OASIS for the required 15-day familiarization period. (Those materials can be found at:
http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/tc-announce/200701/msg00001.html.) As the required review and familiarization
periods have now been completed it is time to vote. The applicable section of the OASIS TC Process is at

Voting to approve the work product of our Technical Committees is a key step in the OASIS process, to better assure our
broader user community of the quality and applicability of the methods or TCs create.  I strongly encourage each member
organization to consider the works submitted for approval and participate by casting a ballot.

As each OASIS member organization has only one vote, participating employees of your organization should provide their
input to you, their voting representative, so that you can decide how to vote on behalf of your organization.  We point
that out to them, on our general [members] list, concurrently with this message.

The voting representative from each OASIS member organization should submit the organization's vote by 11:45 p.m.
Eastern Standard Time (US) 31 January 2007. Voting will be conducted using the OASIS member database tools. To cast your
ballots, go to the Voting group ballot page at http://www.oasis-open.org/apps/org/workgroup/voting/ballots.php. You will
need to log-in to the database tools in order to cast your ballots; if you have not yet obtained your username and
password please contact Scott McGrath (scott.mcgrath@oasis-open.org) for help.

You may change your ballot until the time that balloting closes. Ballots will be publicly archived. Comments may be made
but are not solicited as the specifications already have been subject to public review.
