Subject: Re: [office] Preparing ballot text -- I need your CT links


Thanks - that makes sense and your wording on the ballot is good. I was anxious that adoption of a method at this stage would be premature, but if that is not the case then my concerns are met. Peer review is an important part of the process, and focus makes sense at this stage.

Hi Robin,

Nothing is really adopted in any formal sense until it is written up and included in the specification, and even then it requires a series of votes to advance it from a Committee Draft to a Committee Specification to an OASIS Standard.  On the middle vote the specification will require 2/3 approval of TC members.  That ultimately is what ensures that our published work has a high degree of consensus.

What the present vote accomplishes is to focus our efforts toward removing the imperfections from a single approach rather than trying to simultaneously remove the imperfections from three different approaches.  But until we have an actual specification to vote on, this is a preliminary step, but not the formal adoption of any specification material.
