Subject: Re: [xliff] 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  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,Paul--
