Information about the candidate OASIS Standard and the OSLC Open Project

This is the first work of an OASIS Open Project to be submitted as a candidate for OASIS Standard. 

The OSLC initiative applies Linked Data principles, such as those defined in the W3C Linked Data Platform (LDP), to create a cohesive set of specifications that can enable products, services, and other distributed network resources to interoperate successfully. 

Change Management v3.0 defines a RESTful web services interface for managing product change requests, activities, tasks and relationships as well as related resources such as requirements, test cases, or architectural resources.
