It is time, and past time for the wider oBIX group to meet again. The failure
to meet recently must be laid at my feet, due to some health/rehab issues that
have led me to drop many issues (Don't ask - not because I am sensitive, or
shy about them - on the contrary I will happily tell you *all* about it and
there will go the rest of your day)
Fortunately, the XML committee has been hard at work, and the XML standard,
half-baked when last the larger group peaked into the oven, now looks and
smells ready to pull out and consume.
This means that we must meet to discuss variety of issues and timelines, most
1) Possible timelines for completing the work
2) Deadlines (linked with (1) for each organization with a member
receiving this email to read and comment on draft
3) Plans for this year's Face-2-Face meeting
4) Plans for the work to interact with other OASIS standards
The XML committee meets on the Wednesday, 22^nd of February 14, 2006 at 3:00
EST to discuss the draft. I wish to set up a Teleconference that will count as
a membership meeting, with all the consequences of not attending in accord
with the OASIS rules, between the end of that meeting and the end of the week.
If you have strong feelings about the time, please email them to me before I
post a poll in which you can vote for the preferred meeting time.
