Subject: New TC needed? Was.Potential dates/times for AGSC meeting
Mary, I'm certainly not an expert in OASIS rules although I have been a member since 2001. However, what you are saying seems like a major problem. IF this TC would actually start a standardization effort, there will be literally zillions of very technical decisions that must be taken. To drag these into the main committee and list is not an option. My conclusion is that a standardization effort MUST spawn a new TC. BTW, I think this is better as the skill-sets needed for carrying out market surveys and writing standards are pretty different. Although the interest may be picking up, we are way below the critical mass for carrying out technical stuff. A *credible* STANDARDS effort would need at least 10 people from leading *tech* companies as well. But the TC has not yet decided what to do as far as I can tell. http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/pki-tc/200601/msg00012.html Regards Anders Rundgren Principal Engineer RSA Security ----- Original Message ----- From: "Mary McRae" <email@example.com> To: "'Arshad Noor'" <firstname.lastname@example.org>; "'PKI Application Guidelines'" <email@example.com> Sent: Saturday, January 21, 2006 15:09 Subject: RE: [pki-guidelines] Potential dates/times for AGSC meeting Hi Arshad, Please note that observers should *not* be considered as members of the TC. They are not allowed by our rules to contribute; only to monitor the ongoing email and teleconference discussions. Also, there is no difference in a subcommittee between a member and a voting member since subcommittees can only recommend to the main committee and all decisions must be approved within the larger committee body. Therefore, there is no need for a quorum per se. I'm glad to see that interest is picking up!
