According to my membership records, you
withdrew from the TC in November of last year. That changed your status
to Observer. The OASIS folks are now enforcing the new TC Process rules
regarding Observers, which says that Observers may only observe, not contribute
(including posting to the email list). This change happened recently,
which is probably why your ability to post changed recently.
You can either use the WSS Comments page
to post your thoughts/questions or you may apply for TC Membership (which I
think you just did). TC Membership is subject to approval by your employer’s
primary OASIS rep, so you won’t be able to post to the TC list until that
approval is received and I update your Membership status. Note that voting
status is a separate designation that may be requested only after obtaining TC

Security TC Processed
Welcome to the Web Services Security TC.
Your request to join has been processed. Whether you requested
Prospective Membership or Observer status you should have automatically been
subscribed to the WSSTC e-mail list and you should start seeing messages soon.
If you requested Prospective Membership, and you are an employee of an OASIS
member organization, an email has been sent to your organization's primary
OASIS representative. Your primary representative must sent email
approval of your request for TC Membership to the TC chairs. After
receiving this approval, you will be granted TC Membership, with all the
related IPR obligations. If you are an Individual Member of OASIS, no
approval is necessary to become a TC Member.
After becoming a TC Member, if you would like Voting Member status, you must
make a separate request via email to the TC chairs and myself. You will
then begin a probationary period which lasts until the close of the third TC
meeting or 60 days, which ever comes first. During this probationary
period, you must attend 2 out of 3 meetings, or your probationary period will
end, and you will remain a non-voting Member. Upon successful completion
of the probationary period, you will receive formal notification of your Voting
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me or Kelvin Lawrence or Chris
Kaler, the WSS TC co-chairs.
