OASIS ebXML Collaboration Protocol Profile and Agreement TC
ebXML CPPA Technical Committee Teleconference
August 30, 2001
Dale reviewed the status of the issue of moving the 1.0 CPPA specification from
EbXML to an Oasis standard. We have met the "clerical" requirements for doing so if the TC wishes to do so. At the second Thursday voting meeting of September, any motions for pursuing this can be introduced and processed. No motions are necessary, of course. Dale and Marty reviewed what was known about other groups and some of the arguments, pro and con, for doing so. Marty reminded us that we need to be concerned that it could be a distraction to have the specification undergo review. Dale reported that MSG intends to submit a 1.1 version later this year, and we should attempt to follow with a 1.1 CPPA once MSG has quiesced.
Marty noted that some comments have been submitted about the Negotiation draft.
Marty did not believe any of the comments reflected major issues; many raised questions of scope and priority which will be resolved as the group moves closer to a Requirements document. Kartha emphasized the need for top down clarification of negotiation. Dale wondered whether having bare SOAP as the default protocol for negotiation would be regarded as a major issue, and urged that the negotiation protocol elements fit within a lightweight and minimalistic binding.
Arvola reported on a MSG subteam meeting devoted to creating the MSG issue database.
He reported that David Fischer had agreed to draft the new detailed version of RM for the 1.1 draft.
Dale reminded us that the formal comment period for CPPA closes today, and that work should commence on constructing the issues database. Tony, on vacation, was unable to protest!
We will have a non-voting meeting next week on Thursday, 11:00 am - 12:00 Eastern time (USA). Dale will send out the new calling details for next month. [Time corrected from draft.]
