Subject: Proposal: Align IS 26300 to ODF 1.1 instead of 1.0 maintenance

I request list discussion and inclusion of this proposal on the agenda for the 2010-01-11 ODF TC Coordination Call


1.1 It appears that time is of the essence in aligning IS 26300 with the OASIS Standard for ODF 1.1.

1.2 It is important to have a stable baseline IS 26300 against which an ODF 1.1 Addendum can be submitted.

1.3 The continuing processing of corrigenda against the unaligned IS 26300 will add substantial delays to the achievement of a stable IS 26300 baseline against which an ODF 1.1 Addendum is to be applied.


2.1 The ODF TC ceases creation of further addenda against ODF 1.0 and the IS 26300 counterpart, ODF 1.0 second edition.  Further processing of an ODF 1.0 Errata 02 will be suspended.

2.2 With the concurrence of JTC1 (SC34 WG6), the ODF TC will produce an ODF 1.1 Addendum.  That Addendum will reflect the applicable Errata for ODF 1.0 as well as responses to defect reports against IS 26300 that are resolvable with appropriate Errata for ODF 1.1.  The result, when accepted by JTC1 (SC34 WG6) will provide complete alignment with the ODF 1.1 OASIS Standard.

2.3 Remaining open defect reports and any existing and subsequent issues submitted to the ODF TC will be resolved against OASIS ODF 1.1 and the 1.1-aligned IS 26300 specification.  


3.1 An exception agreement is made with SC34 (WG6) to delay processing of new corrigenda against IS 26300 until the ODF 1.1 alignment is accomplished.  The understanding will be that the addendum will be provided as rapidly as permitted under JTC1 (SC34 WG6) procedures.  Proposed dispositions to WG6 can identify resolutions that will be applied in the alignment rather than as separate IS 26300 corrigenda.

3.2 The ODF TC Prepares ODF 1.1 Errata 01 reflecting all applicable errata from ODF 1.0 Errata 01.  ODF 1.1 Errata 01 also includes responses to other defect reports received against IS 26300 that are resolvable with ODF 1.1 errata.

3.3 On approval of ODF 1.1 Errata 01, a modified edition of the ODF 1.1 specification in which the errata have been applied is created.  Any procedural actions required to have the merged specification be recognized as an authoritative edition of the ODF 1.1 OASIS Standard are taken.

3.4 The merged ODF 1.1 OASIS specification is the basis for creation of the ODF 1.1 Addendum for IS 26300 (with or without merger of corrigenda already accepted against IS 26300 as appropriate for use in an addendum baseline).

3.5 Subsequent defect reports against the unaligned IS 26300 (and ODF 1.0) that arise will be resolved against the specifications for the ODF 1.1-aligned specifications, if not already resolved in the alignment.  Defect reports against ODF 1.1 will be processed in accordance with established maintenance procedures.  (Resolution might well involve deferral to a future edition, such as one related to the in-development ODF 1.2.)
