Subject: OASIS Call for Vote: WSDM-MUWS and WSDM-MOWS v1.0

OASIS Members:

    This is a Call For Vote to approve the following Committee Drafts as OASIS Standards:

    WSDM-MUWS v1.0 (Parts 1 & 2)
    WSDM-MOWS v1.0

Documents:  See references below at end of this message
Ballot: http://www.oasis-open.org/apps/org/workgroup/voting/ballot.php?id=692

The Committee Drafts have had their 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/200502/msg00002.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 http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/process.php#standard.

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.  We 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 advise them of this 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) 28 February 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 review.

Regards  JBC
