We may have the ability to take the changes from ODF 1.1 (accessibility,
etc.) and see these applied to ISO/IEC 26300:2006 as an amendment. The
SC34 Chairman, Sam Oh, seems receptive to this idea. There would be a
editorial effort required to do this, mostly clerical, but the number of
small changes that were made makes the task non trivial.
I'd like to gauge the interest from TC members in undertaking this work.
Is this a worthwhile effort? On a scale of 1 (low) to 10 (high), how
important is this for you?
Note that I'm not proposing that we do this. I'm just asking what the
interest level in this was, as request by Dr. Oh. If the interest level
is high, and we have volunteers to do the work, then we can explore more
deeply what is required.
Personally I think this is an interesting idea, but only if we can do it
in a way that does not slow down ODF 1.2. So maybe do during the 60 days
that ODF 1.2 is out for public review, or after ODF 1.2 approval, when it
is under 6-month review with ISO.
