Subject: RE: Tactical Proposal: Split V2 work items into V2 and V3 (repost )

One issue with the market penetration of ebXML Registry
has been the lack of tools as well as lack of clarity of specs
on several issues. I do believe, there is an advantage in having
these issues addressed in v2 and releasing it as an interim
workable release. 

1. With RAWS, anybody can build clients fast and access an ebXML Registry 
(thanks to the wonderful tools available for this purpose)
2. With RIM enhancements, the spec will be clearer (OK, I have second
on the exact nature of RIM enhancements - but I will let them pass in the
interest of actually getting this baby out)
3. With Security deliverables, the security guidelines are reqs would be

Given these, I do propose that we discuss Farrukh's proposal and take a
action on it.

There has been a discussion of UDDI positioning w.r.t. ebXML Registry -
I don't see how any of the items in Farrukh's proposal conflict with the
positioning issue.

Subject: Tactical Proposal: Split V2 work items into V2 and V3 (repost)

Repost: for some reason last post has not shown now for several hours on
the list.


I would like to propose that we split the candidate work items for what
we know as OASIS ebXML Registry V2.0 into two separate releases (V2.0
and V3.0). V2.0 would contain a sub-set of those work items that are
most vitally needed to help implementations of the registry and registry



-Help implementations by addressing issues that are barrier to adoption
-Deliver those features that are key to adoption ASAP

The remainder of this email proposes specific recommendations.

Proposed Content for V2

-Registry Information Model enhancements
-Registry as Web Service deliverables
-Security team deliverables

Proposed Content for V3

All other work items would be opart of V3. Work would continue on V3
items in parrallel with V2 items as planned before this proposal. If
people have split responsibilities they would place greater emphasis on
V2 responsibilities.

Proposed Time Line

Note proposed dates are motivated by the cutoff date for submission to
OASIS board is beginning of calendar quarter (Oct 1, Jan 1)

-TC approve V2.0 specs by end of Septmber f2f - September 26?

-TC approve V3.0 specs at f2f - Mid December

As you can see that if we are to adopt this proposal, then we need to
make steady progress each week. This would necessitate meeting weekly
rather than bi-weekly.

Please share your thought, suggestions and concerns on this proposal.
