Subject: FW: [members] OASIS Board approves TC Process change that simplifies handling comments on Candidate OASIS Standards
As we are just about to have our V2.40 docs go out for public review, this change in the OASIS TC process is relevant for us.
From: Chet Ensign [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org]
The OASIS Technical Committee (TC) Process (https://www.oasis-open.org/policies-guidelines/tc-process), the policy document governing work at OASIS, is a product of your Board of Directors. At its face-to-face meeting on the 24-25 April 2014, the Board approved an update to the TC Process to clarify a portion of section 3.4 Approval of an OASIS Standard.
Briefly, in section 3.4.2, Public Review of a Candidate OASIS Standard, any change to a COS no matter how trivial required the Technical Committee to effectively start over and advance a new Working Draft through the approval and public review process. The new addition to the Process allows the TC make minor, non-material changes in response to comments and advance a revised Candidate OASIS Standard to the membership for a vote. This is similar to the process now followed for Committee Specification Drafts with Non-Material Changes.
Substantive changes will still require that the TC prepare a new Committee Specification Draft and present it for public review.
You can see the actual changes to the text starting on line 772 of the change-marked PDF file attached to this announcement.
The updated process is effective as of May 1st.
Please let me know if you have questions on this change.
