--PLEASE NOTE QUOTE DEADLINE IS FRIDAY, 17 OCT--
The Consortium is in the process of drafting a press release to announce the formation of the OASIS OpenDocument Format Interoperability and Conformance (ODF-IC) Technical Committee. We have targeted Tuesday, 21 Oct, for distribution.
While OASIS deeply appreciates the contributions of all members to our technical work, only Foundational- and Sponsor-level members elect to receive promotional benefits, such as inclusion in announcements directed to the press. The subhead of the ODF-IC press release will highlight the following members:
--------------------------------------------------- IBM, Sun Microsystems, Google, Novell, Red Hat, US Department of Defense <and any other Sponsor members who join before 17 Oct>
If you represent one of these organizations, and you do *not* wish to be included in the press release, please notify me.
If you represent a Contributor-level organization, and you wish to be recognized for your participation in the ODF-IC work, please contact me immediately for information on upgrading your membership to take advantage of this promotional benefit.
If you need more information about becoming involved in the OASIS ODF-IC Committee, contact dee....@oasis-open.org.
If you represent a Foundational or Sponsor-level organization participating in the OASIS ODF-IC Committee, you may submit a quote in support of this work. Please email quotes to me, including a name and title at your organization to whom the quote can be attributed, by Friday, 17 Oct.
When deciding how to cover new standards work, editors and analysts look for widespread support from industry stakeholders. If you can recommend any other organizations that OASIS should invite to join the ODF-IC TC, please contact dee....@oasis-open.org as soon as possible.
