Subject: Re: UBL response to UN/CEFACT

Dear Jon,
Thanks again and for completeness here is the text of my response to you on
March 20

"Dear Jon,
 Thank you for this and sorry that it has taken me so long to get back to
you . ( its always  more difficult to catch -up when one has been away for
two weeks and working in a substantially different time zone)

However, I think this provides with a good basis for going forward and after
I have had the opportunity of  getting comments from all my colleagues, I'll
be back to you. Hopefully then we can make some  public announcements  and,
as we discussed, share the good news with others"

PS I hope to be back to you next week.

> Revised Plan for Transfer of UBL to UN/CEFACT
> 13 March 2003
> 1. The development of UBL Naming and Design Rules and UBL Library
>    Content shall continue in the current OASIS organizational
>    structure until completion and OASIS standardization of Version
>    1.0 of the following items of work: the UBL Naming and Design
>    Rules, the UBL component library, and an initial set of UBL
>    document schemas.  Completion of these work items is expected
>    in 2Q2003 and OASIS standardization is expected in 3Q2003.  It
>    shall be the plan of the the OASIS UBL TC to complete these
>    items in time to become ATG items of work at the meeting of the
>    UN/CEFACT Forum in September 2003.
> 2. The UBL TC shall recommend to OASIS the creation of one or more
>    short-term mailing lists for the direct input of comments from
>    members of UN/CEFACT into the work of the UBL 1.0
>    specification.  Interested UN/CEFACT members shall be invited
>    to participate informally in UBL TC and technical subcommittee
>    meetings.  Input from UN/CEFACT members shall be given
>    consideration to the fullest extent possible within the limits
>    of UBL's current schedule, scope, and business requirements.
> 3. Upon completion of the initial set of deliverables and their
>    publication as OASIS standards, OASIS shall grant UN/CEFACT an
>    unlimited, perpetual, royalty-free license to continue
>    development of the standards and to publish works derived from
>    those standards as UN/CEFACT specifications.
> 4. Ownership of the UBL name and logo as applied to version 1.0
>    shall remain with OASIS; ownership of the UBL name and logo as
>    applied to later versions of the work shall vest in UN/CEFACT.
>    OASIS shall continue to distribute UBL 1.0 without charge to
>    users but shall discontinue further development of the
>    standard.  UN/CEFACT shall publish future versions of UBL
>    without charge to users.  If UN/CEFACT fails to publish a
>    version of UBL as a UN-sanctioned standard within one year of
>    the date on which this agreement takes effect, or if UN/CEFACT
>    at any future time transfers development of UBL to some third
>    party or terminates its continuing development and maintenance
>    of UBL as a freely available standard, then OASIS shall have
>    the right to resume further development of UBL using the UBL
>    name and logo.
> 5. UBL shall be formally recognized as UN/CEFACT's preferred
>    document-centric XML syntax for business-to-business electronic
>    commerce.
> 6. The OASIS UBL subcommittees shall transfer to UN/CEFACT as UBL
>    subcommittees of ATG2 chartered to continue development of
>    UN/CEFACT's document-centric XML syntax for
>    business-to-business electronic commerce.
> 7. This plan shall become effective when approved by UN/CEFACT,
>    OASIS, and the OASIS UBL Technical Committee.
