Subject: Ballot for extension of public review period

XRI TC Members and Observers:

Gabe and I received a request from the W3C Technical Architecture Group
(http://www.w3.org/2001/tag/) requesting that we extend the public review
period for the XRI 2.0 specifications for two weeks in order to give them
more time to comment.

We've also had two conversations with members of the Network Applications
Consortium, who are working together with the DMTF and Open Group find a
solution to interoperable identifiers (as described in an article I posted
to the list a few weeks ago -
nt-s-Realm&story_id=30788). They too would appreciate more time to evaluate
the XRI 2.0 specs.

We checked with Mary McRae about the impact on timing and she explained that
due to the new OASIS TC process rules that take effect April 15, if we do
decide to incorporate feedback and thus need a second Committee Draft vote,
we will only need a 15-day review period following the vote (see her
explanation below.)

She recommends that the TC hold a formal vote to extend the review period,
which I will be posting an online ballot next. Although by TC rules this
ballot must be open for one week, please vote ASAP so we can inform OASIS of
the outcome.

Thank you,

Hi Gabe,

  Correct. After the initial review is completed, should there be
substantive changes required, you would need to submit the
document for a 2nd review. The review could be for as few as 15 days, and
only those items that have been changed would be subject
to additional comments. At the end of that period, assuming that no
additional substantive changes need to be made, the committee
would vote a) to approve Committee Specification status, and b) to submit to
OASIS for standard vote. The submission must occur on
or before the 15th of the month. OASIS staff has 15 days to review. It is
possible during the review period that minor modifications
need to be made to the submission, such as incorrect document format or
naming structure, listing individual members' corporate
affiliations, bad links, etc. The submission could also be rejected. In the
vast majority of cases, TC Admin will announce a
pre-vote review on the 1st of the month, with the ballot announced on the
16th of the month. The results of the vote would be
announced typically on the 1st of the following month.
