Subject: Re: [office] DIN technical report / follow up from todays call

Hi Florian,

What is the status of this report?  Is the research complete?  Has the report already been drafted?  A liaison typically make working together easier between two organizations and encourages information exchange.  So what work remains for this technical report?  If DIN merely wants us to review and comment, then a liaison is not necessary.  You could submit the draft or questions on the draft to the ODF public comment list.  But if there is more sustained collaboration proposed, then a liaison may be appropriate.  

It is like making a subcommittee.  If something requires a group of people to meet off-line for a short period of time (say less than 3-4 months) then we typically don't bother creating a formal subcommittee.  Too much overhead.  Similarly, if the technical report is almost done, then a liaison might be overkill.  But if some long-term collaboration is proposed, then a liaison is more appropriate.  

Does this make sense?   Anyone disagree with this?

If we think a formal liaison is appropriate then you'll want to review the OASIS policy on TC Liaisons here:  http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/liaison_policy.php#tcliaison

We can vote to have someone be a liaison from the ODF TC to the DIN WG,    The DIN WG can also appoint one of their members to be a liaison to the ODF TC, and join OASIS for that purpose.

What is easiest is if we have a person who is already a member of both committees.  Then that same person could be made the liaison in both directions.  I think the logical person would be you, right?

[office] DIN technical report / follow up from todays call


as a follow up from our call today wrt. the DIN TR mapping between ODF and OOXML I had a short chat with Jan. He is the chair of the DIN working group.

As discussed in the TC call today Jan would be interrested in a liaison with the ODF TC.


(P.S. Sorry for the short message ---- but since I broke my arm I can only to short one-handed notes...)
