OASIS members:

The OASIS Web Services for Remote Portlets (WSRP) TC has submitted the
Web Services for Remote Portlets Committee Specification v1.0, 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 August 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/wsrp/ipr.php
