Subject: RE: [office] Next steps in completing ODF 1.2

I think it would be better to allow targeting new issues that address
defects in CD05/CD06 to a CD07 and then decide whether there is to be no
CD07 later (in which case the retargeting to ODF-Next will be inevitable).
This provides important differentiation between issues that are
intentionally created as ODF-Next items or are intentionally deferred
already, versus ones where we might still deliberate on their importance for
inclusion in a potential further ODF 1.2 draft.

It would be helpful if we created the provisional CD07 target now (after
discussion on Monday) so that it is available for straightforward usage.

1) After the TC call next Monday, we will retarget all new open ODF 1.2
issues to ODF-Next

2) We only accept new issues with a CD06 target under the following

a) the issue comes with an uncontroversial resolution. (Uncontroversial
will be mean that there are no "-1" votes in JIRA)

b) or, the TC votes that the issue is important enough to further delay
ODF 1.2.  TC members can request an ODF 1.2 CD06 target on the mailing
list. If that request is seconded by another TC member, the approval of
the target takes place in the next TC call.

Note that any specific issues deferred to ODF-Next may be re-targetted 
to CD 06 according to a) or b).

After the TC call on Monday, November 8th, condition a) above is 
replaced by:

a')the issue comes with an uncontroversial resolution. (Uncontroversial
will be mean that there are no "-1" votes in JIRA) AND the candidate 
draft for the CD06 ballot has not yet been posted AND the Editor is able 
to integrate the resolution without further delaying the drafts.

In other words, we always preserve the ability for the TC, via a 
majority vote, to open and resolve any issue, even if this results in a 
delay of ODF 1.2.  However, we at the same time take steps to transition 
from the review and editing phase of ODF 1.2 to the final editing and 
approval stage.

3) The TC editor will prepare the final drafts after the November 8th
call. This may actually take a few days, because the generated text has 
to be updated and consistency checks have to run. As soon as the final 
drafts are ready and no motions for resolving further issues do exist, 
the TC editor or chairs will make a motion for approval of the drafts as 
a Committee Specification Draft (CSD) and a follow-up 15-day public review.

This means that the TC has another week to provide resolutions. From
November the 8th on, we prepare the final drafts, and we only further
delay ODF 1.2 in order to resolve further issues if a majority of TC
members approved that.
