Subject: Re: [xcbf] Groups - XCBF XML Common Biometric Format CS April 3 2003.zipuploaded


I do NOT want this to be confrontational.

Can we please have reasoned discussions on what will be a good Standard?

The issues seem to revolve around BASE64, with perhaps a sub-issue of 
which parts use BASIC-XER and which use CXER, and the nature of examples.

We need a consistent document.  But that can only be achieved once we 
all agree on what is to be expressed.

Are we abanonding BASE64 or not?  Are we doing a contorted spec with 
CONTAINED BY, or a simple spec?  Are we clearly using the formal 
notations to specify which bits are CXER and which are BASIC-XER 
(assuming that thre *are* any BASIC-XER - as opposed to CXER - 
components).  And are the examples an tutorial text in-line with the 
normnative text?

These are the main issues to be resolved - not by ballot, but by discussion.

I am sure this is all solvable, but I would really prefer a solution by 
*discussion* within the TC to acheive a consensus,  with futher ballots 
only occuring after there is such a consensus.

Repeasted balllots that fail are certainly allowed by the procedures, 
but are not productive, and bring discredit on the work.
