Subject: UDDI v2 spec for consideration as an OASIS Standard

OASIS members:

The OASIS UDDI Specification TC has submitted the Universal Description, 
Discovery and Integration (UDDI) Committee Specification v2.0, which is 
an approved Committee Specification, for review and consideration for 
approval by OASIS members to become an OASIS Standard. The TC's 
submission is attached below.

In accordance with Section 2 of the OASIS Technical Process, the 
specification has already gone through a 30 day public review period. 
OASIS members now have 15 days to familiarize themselves with the 
submission. On the 16th of April I will send out a Call For Vote to the 
voting representative of each OASIS member organization, who will have 
until the end of the month to cast their ballots on whether this 
Committee Specification should be approved as an OASIS Standard. OASIS 
members should give their input on this question to the voting reps of 
their respective organizations.

Members should note that IPR claims related to this specification have 
been made; please see http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/uddi-spec/ipr.php

OASIS Standards is found at
