Thanks, Janifer. Yes we do and I think it's a high priority.   Any 
volunteers to start it?

>> Mr. Denenberg,
>> I've been following the work of the OASIS SWS Technical Committee with
>> interest. The organization I support, Intelligence Community Enterprise
>> Solutions (ICES), is part of the Director of National Intelligence CIO
>> organization, and provides search and discovery services that allow the
>> sharing and integration of information between the intelligence agencies
>> and their customers. In addition to providing search tools (as well as
>> other community services) on Intelink, ICES is also the DoD's managed

>> networks.
>> As you may know, the DoD developed a Search Web Service specification

>> Since then, the IC and DoD have tried, unsuccessfully, to arrive at an
>> updated, joint federated search protocol. There's general support for

>> Metadata Standard (DDMS) as the basis for a new specification. However,

>> Our organization would appreciate your input on some very near-term
>> decisions we need to make in this area. Specifically, what protocol(s)
>> would you recommend we implement this year (and what should we avoid), in
>> order to line up with the direction you see the OASIS work going? Also,
>> what direction do you see commercial product support going in this area?
>> Please call me at the number below if you'd like. We can also arrange to
>> visit your office, or host a visit to ours as your schedule allows.
