Subject: Membership and Public Review of OASIS Artifact Standard Identification Scheme for Metadata

OASIS Members:

The OASIS Technical Advisory Board (TAB) has asked that the OASIS 
membership and the public review its

     OASIS Artifact Standard Identification Scheme for Metadata

and provide comments during the period ending 1 March 2006 (details below).

This document, approved by the TAB, proposes rules for how OASIS artifacts 
(e.g. specifications, schemas, WSDL) are named, what metadata must be 
associated with each artifact, consistent filenames and persistent (and 
consistent) URIs for artifacts (incorporating some of the required 
metadata), and updates to the OASIS URN spaces.

This work furthers goals for consistent naming, persistent URIs, and the 
efficiency of data and document management across OASIS. Many of the 
recommendations are already in effect, e.g. in the current document 
templates. Others are guidance for work in progress, e.g. persistent URIs 
for accessing OASIS artifacts.

Please carefully consider the proposed requirements, as their 
implementation will facilitate pending improvements in OASIS document 
management, process automation, and expression of namespaces.

While this document is written as a set of requirements, the use of this 
document is recommended and not mandated. After this second General 
Membership review in February 2006, we expect that the OASIS Technical 
Advisory Board will approve a future version as a contribution to ongoing 
OASIS policy discussions.

Earlier versions of this document, under various names, have been 
circulated to the OASIS Chairs email list and (as the "Artifact 
Identification Requirements") went through a General Membership Review 
cycle in July 2005.

The package for this General Membership Review includes

(1) This cover letter

(2) The document 
ArtifactStandardIdentificationSchemeForMetadata-v1.0.1.pdf:  at 

(3) A spreadsheet listing comments and responses from the July 2005 
review:  at:
