Subject: A proposed revision of the OASIS TC Process,

Dear colleagues, 

> You're aware that the OASIS Board has been working on a new IPR Policy 
> and a revision of the TC Process. The IPR Policy was sent out for member

I am wondering what is the real impact of these new policies to 

Let's consider the worst case.  Here I assume that some members of 
this TC cannot accept the upcoming IPR policy.  BTW, if you cannot accept 
the proposed IPR policy, please let me know.

Option 1: This TC will not accept the new IPR policy and will 
          dissolve in nine months.

At present, the OASIS RELAX NG specification is available at 
The other specs of this TC are available in the same directory.

I am not sure if these specs continue to be avaliable when this TC 
is closed.  If the directory for this TC is removed, will these 
specs disappear?  Remember that RELAX NG is merely a committee 
spec rather than an OASIS standard.  (We can certainly go for 
an OASIS standard, but is this a clever use of our time?  After 
all, RELAX NG is an ISO/IEC standard already.)

Option 2: Some members of the TC leave, and this TC is rechartered 
          under the new policies.

If we exercise this option, apparently, none of the RELAX NG 
specs will disappear.

However, the proposed TC process requires that we add a new 
deliverable.  Otherwise, this TC will be closed.

What should be the new deliverable?  RELAX NG V2?
