Subject: Re: [office] PAS Submission of OASIS ODF v1.2 to JTC 1: RERs set complete?

Thanks very much to you and the whole TC team for all the production work to optimize this submission.
Multiple experts advised us that JTC 1's tweaked RER/bibliography rules have recently been elevated to close enforcement scrutiny -- best to comply as fully as possible.

Cordially JBC

Hi Jamie,

We're proposing to go with a slightly different list of RERs, for ZIP,  Blowfish, Dublin Core and OLE2, which are the least "standard" of the set, and the ones which would most benefit from this additional documentation.   The OLE2 one has been reviewed by Microsoft and approved by the TC.  PKWare has reviewed the ZIP one and the TC has approved.  

The other two have been reviewed/approved tentatively by the TC but are awaiting a response from the specification owners (Bruce Schneier and the DCMI).   I'd give these another week.  

We have the option to go forward even without a response (in the RER form we can note that we sent a copy to them but did not hear back) but it would be preferable to have a explicit response.
