Subject: Version 0.1.0 and 0.2.0 of the Language Specification

OpenC2 Technical Committee,

The purpose of this email is to remind you of this Technical Committee's standing rules as they pertain to the generation of its products and to provide advanced notice of the pending votes for the Language Specification.


The OpenC2 TC has standing rules which were adopted in our inaugural meeting and are documented on our homepage.  (please refer to https://www.oasis-open.org/apps/org/workgroup/openc2/download.php/61010/OpenC2%20TC%20Minutes%2020170607.pdf   and https://www.oasis-open.org/committees/tc_home.php?wg_abbrev=openc2#standingrules respectively).  


In the context of OpenC2 TC products,  Standing Rule 2 requires:

·         Products must be submitted to the executive secretary NLT seven business days prior to the TC meeting

·         There is a call for objections prior to the consideration of any artifact.

·         If there are no objections, the product may be accepted, rejected or sent back to the subcommittee for further deliberation. 

Please note that nothing in standing rule 2 supersedes any the OASIS rule requiring special majorities, supermajorities etc. and if there was ever a conflict, we obviously follow the OASIS rules.    

IN the context of the October 18, 2017 TC meeting, Version 0.1.0 of the language specification was submitted and there were no objections, but there appeared to be a lack of understanding regarding the TC's consideration of documents.  Rather than leave any room for discomfort,  the decision to accept, reject or send back version 0.1.0 was deferred to an electronic ballot.  The unfamiliarity of the TC's standing rules was most likely due to the fact that OpenC2 started with 59 members and currently has 121 members. 


An electronic ballot for Version 0.1.0 will close on November 6.  As a result of several weeks of deliberation, the members of the Language Subcommittee have reached general consensus on version 0.1.0 and recommend that it be accepted. 


The Language Subcommittee is currently deliberating on the schema and property tables for the targets.  They are projecting that their deliberations for 0.2.0 will be completed in time for the November 15 TC meeting.   If version 0.2.0 is submitted and there are insufficient objections, then the vote to accept, reject or send back version 0.2.0 will be made during a TC meeting that has been called to order. 


Very Respectfully,




Joe Brule
