Subject: Public Review of Search Web Services v1.0 Discussion Document

To OASIS members, Public Announce Lists:

The OASIS Search Web Services TC has recently approved for public review the
following Discussion Document:

Search Web Services v1.0 Discussion Document

This document: "Search Web Services Version 1.0  - Discussion Document - 2
November 2007", was prepared by the OASIS Search Web Services TC as a strawman
proposal, for public review, intended to generate discussion and interest. It
has no official status; it is not a Committee Draft. The specification is based
on the SRU (Search Retrieve via URL) specification which can be found at
http://www.loc.gov/standards/sru/. It is expected that this standard, when
published, will deviate from SRU. How much it will deviate cannot be predicted
at this time. The fact that the SRU spec is used as a starting point for
development should not be cause for concern that this might be an effort to
rubberstamp or fasttrack SRU. The committee hopes to preserve the useful
features of SRU, eliminate those that are not considered useful, and add
features that are not in SRU but are considered useful. The committee has
decided to request OASIS to release this as a discussion document. Detailed
review of this document is premature at this point and is not requested;
feedback on the functionality and approach is solicited.  Feedback is requested
by December 7.

The public review starts today, 7 November 2007, and ends 7 December 2007. This
is an open invitation to comment. We strongly encourage feedback from potential
users, developers and others, whether OASIS members or not, for the sake of
improving the interoperability and quality of OASIS work. Please feel free to
distribute this announcement within your organization and to other appropriate
mail lists.

More non-normative information about the specification and the technical
committee may be found at the public home page of the TC at 
http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/tc_home.php?wg_abbrev=search-ws. Comments
may be submitted to the TC by any person through the use of the OASIS TC Comment
Facility which can be located via the button marked "Send A Comment" at the top
of that page, or directly at
