Thank you for sharing the draft press release; some comments from myself: 

1) At a late stage in the charter submission process, there was a change of
conveners agreed with Mary. Thus please substitute "Bryan Aupperle" with "Pete
Robbins" and "Henning Blohm" with "Sanjay Patil". The company names remain

2) One of the key attributes of the SCA technoligy is its flexibility, so could
you please change line 3 to "SCA defines a flexible model...." 

3) An important aspect of SCA which is missing from the SCA-descriptive
paragraph (#4) is the ability to declare policies. We suggest a couple of minor
additions to address this aspect: 
The SCA model encompasses a wide range of technologies for service components,
access methods that connect them and policy that provides declarative qualities
of service.  For components, this .... For access methods, ...  For policy,
this includes a framework for integrating commonly used policy languages and
quality of service expressions. 

4) These charters are following the Member Section requirement of developing
test plans & test cases in order to improve the levels of future conformance of
implementations. Given that this is a new, but key move by OASIS TCs, I
recommend that we highlight it in the press release in a short paragraph before
Jamie's quotation. As a starting point, I suggest: 
In order to assist the production of conformant implementations, the Technical
Committees will also develop a Test Plan, Test Cases and Scenarios for each

5) In order to be consistent with the short names of each TC, I recommend
inserting a hyphen after each occurence of SCA in the first two paragraphs that
refer to the TCs (SCA-Assembly, SCA-Policy, SCA-Bindings, SCA-BPEL). In the
third of the paragraphs, please rename the "SCA-C" TC to "SCA-C-C++". 

Thanks. (I've copied <opencsa-ms> as the Steering Committee have a policy of
doing all business on this more open mailing list, rather than <opencsa-sc>.)
