Subject: Call to revise OASIS Reg/rep TC charter

To OASIS Registry/Repository TC Members and ebXML Registry/Repository WG 

The OASIS Registry/Repository Technical Committee has approved a resolution 
to (1) update the current Charter of the TC to reflect the scope of vision 
of the ebXML Registry/Repository Working Group, and (2) change the name of 
the TC to reflect the added scope of ebXML.

The Charter of the TC, as such, was written before the recent update of 
OASIS procedures.   The current Objective and Scope of the OASIS Reg/Rep TC 
is:   The objective of the committee is to develop one or more 
specifications for interoperable registries and repositories for SGML- and 
XML-related entities, including but not limited to DTDs and schemas. 
XML.org, an initiative of OASIS, intends to construct and maintain a 
registry and repository in accordance with these specifications, including 
an interface that enables searching and browsing of the contents of a 
repository of those entities. The registry and repository are to be 
designed to interoperate and cooperate with other similar registries and 

OASIS procedures now require the following of a TC:
1. Name of the TC
2. Statement of Purpose
3. List of Deliverables and projected dates
4. Language in which the TC will conduct business
5. Date, time and place of the first meeting
6. Proposed meeting schedule for the first year
7. names and email addresses of members (minimum three)
8. name of chair
9. names of meeting sponsors (for both phone and face-to-face meetings).

If you are interested in participating in the re-chartered OASIS Reg/rep TC 
(new name yet to be determined), please plan on attending an OASIS Reg/rep 
TC  conference call on Friday, May 25th at 1:00 Eastern Time.  (Call 
details will be sent out next week.)  For those of you newly joining the 
OASIS Reg/rep TC, this will be considered an official meeting.  If you do 
wish to join the OASIS Reg/rep TC, you must send me email stating 
such.  Any questions regarding fees, grandfathering ebXML membership, etc. 
should go to Karl Best of OASIS, karl.best@oasis-open.org .

A first draft of the revised charter addressing items 1-9 above will be 
sent out by Tuesday of next week and will (hopefully) incorporate many of 
the ideas that were discussed in Vienna.  Note that we will not be voting 
on the new charter during this conference call.

I realize this is somewhat short notice; however I will be unavailable May 
26th - June 6th and do not want to put off our first discussion regarding 
the revised charter until my return.  If you have serious concerns about 
the short notice, please contact me directly at lisa.carnahan@nist.gov  or 
(301) 975-3362.
