Resolution 011204-01. Resolved unanimously: That the
minutes of the 31 October 2001 and 15 November 2001 Board
meetings are approved.
3. ebXML Status. Patrick presented status of current
discussions with UN/CEFACT regarding ongoing ebXML work, especially
the creation of joint teams for marketing and architecture.
There are still some issues to be resolved, but for now the
5/01 Vienna Memorandum of Understanding is still the governing
document for our work. The OASIS ebXML Joint Committee will
be asked to nominate a technical representative to the OASIS-UN/CEFACT
joint management team.
4. "Big 4 MoU". After discussions, it was
decided to accept an invitation from the ISO/IEC/ITU/ECE to
join their MoU as an International User Group by adding the
following two sections to the base agreement and identify
OASIS in the Register of Participating IUGs:
A.18 It is understood that OASIS and UN/CEFACT
have jointly developed a set of specifications for electronic
business called ebXML, that work on the ebXML specifications
is being continued under the respective OASIS and UN/CEFACT
processes, and that OASIS and UN/CEFACT have their own agreement
for the joint coordination and management of the ebXML work.
A.19 It is understood that OASIS creates specifications
including those related to the use of XML for electronic business,
that the topics pursued by OASIS are selected by its members,
and that OASIS technical committees are formed and operate
under terms of the OASIS TC Process. OASIS seeks to promote
collaboration between its technical committees and Standards
Organizations or other groups developing standards and specifications,
and will create liaisons and other relationships with these
groups as appropriate.
Resolution 011204-02. Resolved unanimously: That the
OASIS Board of Directors accept the invitation of the ISO/IEC/ITU/ECE
Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) Management Group for OASIS
to join the MoU as an International User Group. Karl Best
is nominated as OASIS' representative to the MoU Management
Resolution 011204-03. Resolved unanimously: That the
OASIS Board of Directors approves submission of the proposed
text to the MoU MG for inclusion in the MoU document. Any
substantive change to this text must be submitted to the OASIS
Executive Committee for approval.
5. Annual General Meeting. Further discussion of the
agenda and details for the AGM were discussed, including setting
topics and speakers.
6. ISO Submission Status. OASIS is proceeding to apply
for PAS status so that we can fast-track selected standards
at ISO. ANSI was also considered, but for various reasons
it was felt better to just pursue ISO for now. We will need
to identify a suitable initial standard in our application
and research the IPR issues.
