Subject: [xcbf] XCBF Committee Specification Approved

The January 20 version of our document has now been approved as
an OASIS Committee Specification with a YES vote from eight of
eleven eligible members, no votes against approval, and none abstaining.

I have updated the XCBF web page with the CS document and a notice
of our reaching this important milestone.



Committee Specification

The Committee Specification is the completed and approved work of the
TC; the individual members of the TC vote to approve the work at this
level. A Committee Specification is work-complete, and people and
organizations may start implementing it without having to wait for OASIS
Standard status, but the approval of the specification by OASIS members
gives additional credence to the spec. There is no requirement that the TC
also submit the Committee Specification for consideration as an OASIS Standard.

The vote to approve the work as a Committee Specification requires a 2/3
vote of TC members, with no more than 1/4 objecting. As with other TC
decisions, this decision should minuted and posted to the mail list and web
page. The TC chair should also notify the TC Administrator so that the
specification can be added to a web page listing Committee Specifications.
