     - progress being made today with OASIS legal counsel
   - Ken has contacted Paul Thorpe regarding his availability to help
     with the creation of ASN.1 artefacts for UBL 2.2 ... this is what

     production of the artefacts, with the assistance from Erlend as needed
   - please progress unaddressed JIRA tickets, especially the ones from
     UBL 2.2
   - remember to become watchers of a ticket in order to get push
     notifications ... for example with the ticket number in ###:


   - open issues at: https://issues.oasis-open.org/issues/?filter=12972
   - missed the end-of 2018 deadline, trying now for an end of March
     vote on a 30-day public review to deal with feedback at the
     beginning of May
     - first draft of public review needs to be ready for February 27
     - work towards public review vote March 20 (leaves two weeks for TC
       Admin action and we cannot ask for expedited processing; ready by
       March 13 would be best)

   - Ken reviewed documentation requirements (processes, parties, and types)
     for new documents
- Ken working on annexes with input from Cécile and Erlend, and will draft
       some text for review
     - business processes
         - created as prose for Ken to inject into UBL hub document
     - party roles
         - created as an XML document that is massaged before being
           added to the hub document
     - document types and schemas
         - created as an XML document that is massaged before being
           added to the hub document

UBL Australian Localisation Subcommittee (ALSC)
   - initial draft work ready for review in minutes:

UBL Payments and Finance Subcommittee (PayFin)
   - nothing to report at this time

UBL Post-award
   - nothing to report at this time

UBL Pre-award
   - lots of discussion coming up on some important issues
   - see Other Business below regarding an online validation tool

UBL Small Business Subcommittee (SBSC)
   - nothing to report at this time

UBL Transportation Subcommittee (TSC)
   - now modeling export customs declaration from the EU UCC model
     - most of the ASBIEs are there but may need new ABIEs
     - some things seem "inside out" from the UBL view of the world
     - may have a draft ready for next week
   - will follow with transit customs declaration and import customs
     declaration working from the EU model which, itself, is from the
     WCO model

UBL Naming and Design Rules Subcommittee (NDRSC)
   - awaiting feedback from subcommittee members on draft deliverables

Request from http://MarkupDeclaration.org
   - project to promote the use of XML and declarative markup techniques
   - GitHub repository created:
   - requested that someone from the project participate by creating GitHub
     "issues" for action items:

We want for Balisage 2019 is to have 100 "issues" opened in the "Technology" GitHub repo and 100 "issues" opened in the "Applications" GitHub repo.

An "Issue" is not a bug (we are using the GitHub terminology here) :
*For technologies: what are technologies that we want to see created or enhanced to extend the convenient and everyday use of declarative markup. https://github.com/markupdeclaration/technologies *For applications: what is a an applications or tutorials that needs to be documented or enhanced to extend the convenient and everyday use of declarative markup - https://github.com/markupdeclaration/applications

Can I please enlist your help and ask you 1) to open 3 issues 2) to find another 3 friends and ask them also to open 3 issues (and each find 3 friends?)

For example, it would be awesome if you opened in the "applications" GitHub repo 3 issues describing each how XML is used in UBL . The first issue could be simply that we need to "create or point to a simply primer of how XML is helping interop Businesses using UBL. The second could be to "create or point to a simply primer" on specific pieces of how XML is helping for example Denmark and the third one could be for example focused on a specific vertical.

JIRA tickets
   - available filters:
        - UBL 2.x - https://issues.oasis-open.org/issues/?filter=12972
        - BDNDR   - https://issues.oasis-open.org/issues/?filter=13472
        - All UBL - https://issues.oasis-open.org/issues/?filter=11670
        - TCAdmin - https://issues.oasis-open.org/issues/?filter=13070

   - when creating tickets, remember to distinguish the following components
     by how they are described to be used as categories:
     - if you leave the "Component/s" field empty, the ticket will not show up
       in the summary filter

   - status and resolution values:
     - NEW - the issue has been created but not yet agreed to be in
             consideration or not for the development distribution
           - in order for the issue to become active work for the committee
             the new ticket must be changed to OPEN or it will not be seen
             in the "to do" filter
           - the other option on a new ticket is to change it to DEFERRED
           - please remember to look at the open filter to ensure visibility:
     - OPEN - the issue is in consideration for the development distribution
            - keep the issue OPEN when assigning to Ken for incorporation
            - please remember to add a comment regarding expectations whenever
              you assign an OPEN ticket to another person for any action
     - RESOLVED + Incomplete - the issue has been decided but not yet in test
     - RESOLVED + Applied - the issue is incorporated in test but not released
     - RESOLVED + Fixed - the issue is incorporated in a working draft version
     - RESOLVED + Later - the issue is still up for discussion for a future
                          minor revision but not the current development
     - RESOLVED + No Action - considered as no action for any distribution
     - RESOLVED + Cannot Reproduce - considered as no action for distribution
     - APPLIED + Fixed - the issue is included in a public review (record the
                         availability of the disposition once review opened)
     - DEFERRED - the issue is not in consideration for any minor revision
                - please remember to use this when creating new tickets for
                  backwards-incompatible changes
    - see also the discussion on the status workflows here:

   - members please note to discuss ticket issues as comments to the ticket so
     that we can audit the discussion when making decisions about the ticket,
     without having to find the discussion on the main mail list

   - to find all of the OASIS TC Administration tickets related to UBL, use
     the https://issues.oasis-open.org/issues/?filter=13070 filter


  - Australian Localisation Subcommittee will be meeting in the BDXR "off
    weeks" one hour in advance of the UBL Pacific call (00:00UTC)
  - Transportation Subcommittee will be meeting on Wednesdays every week at
    14:00UTC (will be using Peter's GotoMeeting facility), perhaps additional
    ad hoc meetings will be scheduled to catch up with backlog
  - other subcommittees will be meeting on an as-required basis

  - if we had a face-to-face the week of 2019-09-23 then attendees could
    continue on to Vienna for the Exchange Summit conference the following
    week (as was convenient for some members in 2018)
    - offers to host from Zwolle (NL), Copenhagen (DK)
  - do we need a face-to-face in the southern US in February/March? If so,
    who do we know who could host us or sponsor a meeting venue?
    - confirmed that we can hold a meeting in San Francisco hosted by
      Tradeshift, so we have to decide some dates
      - we cannot decide on a date until we know when the first public review
        ends, so that we can work on the result at the meeting
    - if the meeting gets pushed out to April/May then we have another
      possible host of the US Fed in Minneapolis (possibly May 6-10??)
    - can we go back to Tradeshift also regarding May 6-10 in San Francisco?
    - this would be timed after the end of our first review so that we can
      work on a second review
