OMG .. Jim, can you ask for an update of the version published at:
      Please also email the task forces and SOA Sig.

Here is the statement we're looking to send to the press that can be used as an intro/abstract:

Members of OASIS, OMG, and The Open Group announce the publication of a new white paper, "Navigating the SOA Open Standards Landscape Around Architecture." The paper was produced to help the SOA community at large navigate the myriad of overlapping technical products produced by these organizations with specific emphasis on the “A” in SOA; i.e., Architecture.

This joint white paper explains and positions standards for SOA reference models, ontologies, reference architectures, maturity models, modeling languages, and  governance. It outlines where the works are similar, highlights the strengths of each body of work, and touches on how the work can be used together in complementary ways. It is also meant as a guide to users of these specifications for selecting the technical products most appropriate for their needs, consistent with where they are today and where they plan to head on their SOA journeys.

We are working on getting quotes to go with this statement to the Press.  We're trying to get this done by Monday so that Carol Geyer (OASIS) can send it out before her vacation."
