Subject: RE: [security-services] proposal wrt "status" and"send comments to the editor"


	Agreed. I am using a similar scheme for the Assertions JSR. I also would
like to see a common format - I had suggested one long time ago.

 | Subject: [security-services] proposal wrt "status" and "send comments to
 | the editor"
 | Importance: Low
 | The present doc set format includes this line on the first page..
 |   "Status: Interim draft; send comments to the editor"
 | After thinking about it for a bit, I have the following interrelated
 | suggestions. My apologies for not bringing this up earlier.
 | 1. Rather than encourage readers to send comments to the editors
 | privately, I
 | feel we should encourage that they send comments to a place
 | where we can all
 | see them, and where they are archived. I think this will be especially
 | important for the doc set we plan to advertise here on 9-Jan.
 | We already have an archived list set up for the world-at-large to send
 | comments..
 |   security-services-comment@lists.oasis-open.org
 |   archive:
 | http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/security-services-comment/
 | I suggest we add a few new lines to the first page of the
 | present doc set to
 | REPLACE "send comments to the editor", e.g...
 |   Send comments to: security-services-comment@lists.oasis-open.org
 | Also, doc editors should subscribe to that list.
 | 2. Change "Status:" to "Maturity Level:", and use the proposed
 | maturity level
 | terminology from this message thread..
 |   updated -- proposed schedule. plus"committee last call" process

Maturity level values described in that proposal are..

  "committee working draft"		-- where the docs are now

  "candidate committee specification"	-- upon entry to Last Call, and on
					   if no showstopper normative technical
					   issues are found

  "committee specification"		-- after LC, and once all non-normative
					   editing is complete, and docs are
					   voted to this maturity level.

So, this would yield something like this on the first doc pages...


  Document identifier: ...

  Location: ...

  Publication Date: ...

  Maturity Level: Committee Working Draft

  Send comments to: security-services-comment@lists.oasis-open.org

  Editors: ...
