4.) ODF V1.2 Update and Discussion for Action Plan -- suggestions from Bart Hanssens: -- an easy-to-grasp brochure on what's new in ODF 1.2 ? -- a list of platforms NOT supporting ODF yet (mainframe ? iPhone ?) -- a map (like Bob Sutor's map) showing where ODF is accepted as a national/regional standard -- virtual plug-fest to support the progress of ODF interoperability and conformance -- suggestion from Rob Weir: -- offer a webinar series
The TC discussed a potential list of deliverables to support the impending approval of ODF 1.2 in mid-2009. The goal of completing these deliverable by June 30 is to be ready to support the formal announcement of ODF 1.2 when it is successfully voted an OASIS standard.
Rob Weir provided an update on the current progress of ODF 1.2; i.e. its recent successful Committee Draft status. A rough estimate of an additional 4 - 6 months to OASIS standardization was provided.
Don Harbison agreed to draft a matrix of candidate deliverables by audience type.
Bart Hanssens led a discussion on the opportunity to plan and lead a more formal ODF Interoperability event, or 'plug-fest'. Format for this event is either virtual or a face-to-face event. Jane Harnad will be invited to attend a future TC call to advise.
As time expired, the meeting was adjourned at this point.
