Subject: RE: [sca-assembly-comment] Ballot closure



For a year now  the TC has been on hold awaiting a second conforming implementation.

In the absence of any additional statements, at the last TC meeting there was a motion to ballot to close the TC.

I have opened the ballot based on the wishes of the TC at that meeting. Lets see how this ballot turns out.


I would like to note that closing the TC down does not delete the specifications and test suite from the OASIS repository: http://docs.oasis-open.org/opencsa/ will still be publicly accessible!

Subject: [sca-assembly-comment] Ballot closure




It was brought to my attention that the TC is considering closing.


This caught me by surprise, particularly as it was asserted that there is only one active implementation, which I assume to be Apache Tuscany. Fabric3 (www.fabric3.org) also conforms to the Assembly TC and has active plans to claim conformance to other specifications. 


Given the breadth of the specifications, conformance requires a significant time investment. 


Closing the TCs down would derail the investment various runtimes have made in this effort. In addition, closing the specifications would hurt the industry in general as no standards exist that cover the same space as SCA.


Is the only issue prompting a ballot for closure that lack of two conformant implementations?
