   Additions to the calendar:

   Review of Atlantic call minutes

   Review of Pacific call minutes

   Membership status review

      - voting status is determined by the following:
        - existing voting members must not miss two consecutive meetings to
          maintain voting status
        - non-voting members must attend two consecutive meetings to obtain
          voting status
      - no changes in voting membership applicable at the end of this
        week's meetings

UBL 2.1 Public Review 3

   - latest version of the comment response document has been posted:
      - TC Administration has approved the structuring of the content
   - Committee Specification Draft 3 Preview Draft 1 published:
   - acceptance of the model changes from PSC:
   - requests sent to Tim for UML diagrams and Paul for ASN.1 files
     - Tim has delivered new UML diagrams
     - awaiting ASN.1 files from Paul
     - it was noted at the last Pacific meeting (but not minuted) that
       these ASN.1 files are very important for some constituencies and
       that we cannot go to release without them being correct
   - Ken H. will produce CSD3 and PRD3 when all files collected

UBL 2.1 Release Time-line

   Status of the time-line

    - comments received during public review 3 are accommodated in the
      document model and documentation by Ken H. using TSC and PSC responses
    - committee has informally approved the changes to the model and XSD files
    - Paul to create ASN.1 files from the XSD files
    - committee specification draft 4 and public review draft 4 ZIPs posted by
      Ken H. for vote at either a regular meeting or a special ad-hoc meeting
      (if an ad-hoc meeting is called, Ken will propose a date/time around
      13:00UTC (09:00EDT and 21:00WST) in order to try and include all voting
    - TC Administration notified for posting/processing of public review
      (note that TC Administration happens to be very busy with some tasks
      being listed for action for almost 2 weeks - just the luck of the draw
      with so many committees happening to have action items)
    - TC Administration runs public review 4 for a 15-day period
    - comments received during public review 4 are accommodated,
      possibly triggering another round of working draft, committee
      specification draft and public review draft (but hopefully not)
    - if none of the comments are material, then all of the changes
      are clearly summarized and reported to OASIS TC Administration
    - at a weekly meeting we request OASIS to run a Special Majority Ballot
      to approve the committee specification draft as a committee
      specification (CS) that can be held seven days after the close
      of the public review
    - three statements of use are obtained
    - committee submits CS to OASIS as candidate standard
    - OASIS runs a 60-day public review
    - OASIS conducts a membership-wide ballot
    - OASIS approves UBL 2.1 as an OASIS standard

Business Document Header Task Group

    - report from Tim regarding UN/CEFACT project on header and envelope
      has stalled due to lack of resources
    - UN/CEFACT is investigating other strategies for this work
