Subject: Fw: Wikis

Hello UBL TC,

FYI.  Based on our experience with Kavi, I'm inclined to let other
TCs debug this before we try to use it, but if anyone wants to
play, let me know.

     A number of OASIS TCs have asked for Wiki capability.  Wikis have 
proven to be a useful "scratch space'" tool in communities like ours. The 
most stable, capable commonly-used Wiki engine that our tech staff have 
identified is MoinMoin, which several OASIS-related communities use.  We 
plan to make Wiki pages available to any TC that requests it,.  Our tech 
staff has installed a Wiki server and is running a beta test with the XRI 
and XDI TCs.

      Expected ground rules:  (a) global public readable, (b) write access 
to TC members,  (c) the IPR Policy applies, and (d) archiving of 
intermediate drafts is intermittent (as with all Wikis), so any permanent 
artifacts should be moved to the regular TC document repository.

     As the beta testing TCs do their work, you may find it interesting 
to  watch.  See:  http://wiki.oasis-open.org/xri
     and http://wiki.oasis-open.org/xdi
     For more on the MoinMoin engine specifically 
see:  http://moinmoin.wikiwikiweb.de/FrontPage
     For more on WIkis generally, here's one of many possible resources:

      Any other TCs that are interested in being part of the beta test, 
particularly those with robust activity and a strong likelihood to use the 
resource, should let us know.  (Directly, please, not by cc to this broad 
list.)  Our plan is to be done with the testing phase, and integrate a Wiki 
link into the TC page menus, by late July.

      This new, optional facility is only one of several significant 
improvements we're planning to OASIS document handling capabilities in the 
next few months.  Among other things, with the assistance of our Technical 
Advisory Board, we shortly will be posting a revised plan for naming and 
location of all TC work product.  We expect that this will make uploading, 
and finding, our work much easier.

     Regards JBC
