Subject: new OASIS discussion list: UDDI promotion

Upon the request by three eligible participants, I have created an OASIS
Discussion List for the purpose of discussing the possible creation of
one or more OASIS Technical Committees related to the promotion of UDDI. 
Discussion on the list will begin in seven days, and the list and its 
archive will be deleted after 90 days. One or more TCs may or may not be 
formed as a result of this discussion.

The participants in the discussion list should decide if there is
sufficient interest to form an OASIS TC, write a proposal to start the
TC (including the TC charter), and select a TC chair.

The discussion list has been proposed by the following members of OASIS:

George Zagelow, IBM, zagelow@us.ibm.com
Mike De Nicola, Fujitsu, mwdn@fsw.fujitsu.com
Sinisa Zimik, SAP, sinisa.zimek@sap.com

The discussion leader will be George Zagelow.

In order to participate in this discussion you should subscribe to the 
discussion list by sending a message to 
uddi-promo-discuss-subscribe@lists.oasis-open.org. OASIS membership is 
not required in order to subscribe to this list. If you do not wish to 
subscribe but wish to view the discussion you may view the list archives

Several members of OASIS are planning to organize one or more new 
standards projects at OASIS concentrating on UDDI.  OASIS will launch a 
discussion list (open to nonmembers as well as members) for scoping 
those efforts.

The draft below is a starting point for further discussion by interested 
parties and prospective participants.

Statement of Purpose

UDDI has been in development for over three years and much progress has 
been made.  Version 2 has been approved by the membership of OASIS as an 
OASIS Standard, and Version 3.01 has been approved by the OASIS UDDI 
Spec TC as a Commmittee Draft. Many technology providers are now 
shipping products supporting Version 2, and will presumably extend that 
support to Version 3 as the standardization is completed.  However, UDDI 
is only one technology in the rapidly evolving initiative of Web 
Services, but one that will be of critical importance as the number of 
Web Services explodes. At the same time, many potential users have lost 
track of UDDI, or are in need of help in utilizing this powerful 
technology.  We propose to discuss one or more Technical Committees to 
address these needs.

The work could conceivably generate work in any/all of the following
*  UDDI User Experiences
*  UDDI Best Practices
*  UDDI User Education
*  UDDI promotion / evangelism
*  Usage of UDDI as a component of Web Services
*  Additional activities

It is the hope of the UDDI Member Section that any Technical Committe(s) 
formed would be affiliated with the UDDI Member Section, where a small 
budget is available to produce deliverables.  It is also hoped that 
interested members would consider joining the Member Section to help in 
the overall leadership of UDDI at OASIS.
