Candidate(s) for subcommittee chair(s)?


Discussions to be resumed in September.


TC Liaisons


ISO TC 204/WG7


Agreed at the September 11, 2019 TC conference call to seek a formal liaison with ISO TC 204/WG7 specifically for collaborating on the new ISO 24533 specification.


We need to appoint a liaison, preferably someone who is a member of both groups. See also: https://www.oasis-open.org/policies-guidelines/liaison#liaisons


CEN TC 434


Agreed at the Copenhagen face-to-face meeting that the UBL TC is open to establish a formal liaison with CEN TC 434 to create a European or international standard for electronic invoicing, if there is an interest from the CEN TC.


CEN informs that a liaison cannot be established at TC level. Awaiting feedback from OASIS.




ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 32/WG 1 is open to establish a formal liaison. Ken and Andrea participated in the last WG 1 meeting.


Next SC 32 meeting will be June 4. All working groups will meet between June 4 and mid-August.


WG 1 had their first e-invoicing meeting last week. It is deemed convenient to establish a formal liaison between WG 1 and this TC. Andrea volunteered as liaison.


OASIS Liaison Policy: https://www.oasis-open.org/policies-guidelines/liaison#liaisons


Does the TC approve appointing Andrea Caccia as liaison representative between the ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 32/WG 1 and the OASIS UBL TC, in accordance with the above OASIS Liaison Policy?


Motion made by Ken. Seconded by Levine. Approved by all members attending the Pacific and Atlantic calls. Kenneth will inform OASIS about the decision.

JIRA status and resolution value definitions

Necessary to review the definitions of ticket status and resolution in JIRA to align with the values that currently can be assigned.


Our current definitions are:


-  NEW: the issue has been created but not yet agreed to be in consideration or not for the development distribution

o  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

o  the other option on a new ticket is to change it to DEFERRED

o  please remember to look at the open filter to ensure visibility: https://issues.oasis-open.org/issues/?filter=12972

-  OPEN: the issue is in consideration for the development distribution

o  keep the issue OPEN when assigning to Ken for incorporation

o  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

o  please remember to use this when creating new tickets for backwards-incompatible changes

-  See also the discussion on the status workflows here: https://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/ubl/201709/msg00000.html


Subcommittee conference calls


-  Transportation Subcommittee will be on hold until after August.

-  Pre-award Subcommittee will be on hold until further notice, unless there is a request for a meeting.

-  Other subcommittees will be meeting on an as-required basis




Agreed to cancel face-to-face meeting in September, as traveling in is challenging for many TC members. Agreed to plan another online work sessions around UBL 2.3 public reviews, next time after end of PRD03.
