     The Committee Draft has had its required 30 day public review, and the 
review materials were sent out to the membership of OASIS for the required 
15-day familiarization period.  (Those materials can be found at 
http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/tc-announce/200412/msg00008.html.)  As 
the required review and familiarization periods have now been completed it 
is time to vote.  The applicable section of the OASIS TC Process is at 

     Voting to approve the work product of our Technical Committees is a 
key step in the OASIS process, to better assure our broader user community 
of the quality and applicability of the methods or TCs create.  I strongly 
encourage each member organization to consider the works submitted for 
approval and participate by casting a ballot.

     As each OASIS member organization has only one vote, participating 
employees of your organization should provide their input to you, their 
voting representative, so that you can decide how to vote on behalf of your 
organization.  We point that out to them, on our general [members] list, 
concurrently with this message.

     The voting representative from each OASIS member organization should 
submit the organization's vote by 11:45 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (US) 31 
January 2005.  Voting will be conducted using the OASIS member database 
tools.  To cast your ballots, go to the Voting group ballot page at 
http://www.oasis-open.org/apps/org/workgroup/voting/ballots.php.  You will 
need to log-in to the database tools in order to cast your ballots;  if you 
have not yet obtained your username and password please contact Scott 
McGrath (scott.mcgrath@oasis-open.org) for help.

     You may change your ballot until the time that balloting 
closes.  Ballots will be publicly archived.  Comments may be made but are 
not solicited as the specifications already have been subject to public
