Subject: OASIS Guidelines to Writing Conformance Clauses

Last year the OASIS Technical Advisory Board (TAB) wrote up a "Guidelines to Writing Conformance Clauses".  This was to support the new OASIS policy around conformance clauses:


"A specification that is approved by the TC at the Public Review Draft, Committee Specification or OASIS Standard level must include a separate section, listing a set of numbered conformance clauses, to which any implementation of the specification must adhere in order to claim conformance to the specification (or any optional portion thereof)."

This TC Process addition was added after ODF 1.0 and ODF 1.1 were approved.  ODF 1.2 will be enhanced to conform to this new requirement.  Any discussion of ODF conformance properly belongs on that discussion list, not here.

However, any formal deliverable of the proposed OIIC TC will also be required to follow this conformance policy.  In particular I'd draw your attention to the "Guidelines to Writing Conformance Clauses" posted here:


It is this document which expresses our drafting requirements for conformance.  Speculation on what the W3C, the WTO,  the EC or the Interplanetary Interoperability Council requires is irrelevant.
