Subject: Fwd: Planned PAS Submission of OASIS ODF v1.2 to JTC 1: draft explanatory report

Dear members of the OpenDocument TC:

As we prepare for the PAS submission of OpenDocument ("ODF") version 1.2 to ISO/IEC JTC 1, please review the attached draft Explanatory Report, which will serve as the transmittal shared with all voting JTC 1 members as part of their PAS ballot.

We believe that the draft is close to final, and has benefited already from input and review from a number of TC members.  Comments should be shared back with this TC list. 

Please note also that JTC 1 has modified its requirements for the referencing of external non-de-jure specifications, as described in new Standing Document 5 (Normative References), which can be found in the posted JTC1 rule packages here:


We have conferred with your TC chairs regarding which references in ODF v1.2, if any, may require updating or explanation, according to that new rule, and I understand this topic will be raised at a TC meeting in the near future.

Finalization of the Explanatory Report and the foregoing matters are the last required steps, prior to our seeking a ballot from the JTC 1 Secretariat.  Please feel free to contact either Chet Ensign or myself, or your TC chairs, if you have any questions or comments. 

Kind regards   
Jamie Clark
