Subject: A quick note on "Notes"

Hi David and XLIFF TC members,

I wanted to make sure that you are aware of fairly recent (a few years ago) changes to the OASIS TC Process regarding Non-Standards Track publications.

Most importantly, the TC may directly publish a Committee Note without preparing a Committee Note Draft or conducting a Public Review.  (The template I sent assumed a "Committee Note Draft" publication.)

The specific text of the revised TC Process [1] follows:

Non-Standards Track Work Products may directly be approved as Committee Notes by the Technical Committees via a Full Majority vote.

Public reviews are optional for Committee Notes. If a TC wishes to conduct public reviews before approving a Committee Note, the same procedures for approving a Committee Specification (as outlined in section 3.1, section 3.2 and section 3.3) and a similar terminology used for the intermediate drafts of the Committee Specifications (i.e. Committee Note Draft and Committee Note Public Review Draft) must be followed.

Note that a Committee Note is never progressed as an OASIS standard.

After approving a Committee Note, a Technical Committee may notify the TC Administrator for publishing the Committee Note to the OASIS Library and announcing its publication to the OASIS membership.

Best regards,
