In case you missed it, here are some quick updates:

1) Public review of ODF 1.2 Part 3 has ended.  Based on feedback received 
we plan on revising and approving a 2nd CD.  The 41 comments received and 
the resolutions we have so far can be found in JIRA here:  

2) Public review of ODF 1.2 Part 1 has begun.  You should have received 
that info via Kimura-san.  The public review runs through March 26th.

3) The TC voted unanimously to request that OASIS submit ODF 1.1 to JTC1. 
However, this request needs to go through a few more internal-OASIS 
approval steps before we can contribute it.  The OAISIS Board of Directors 
meets later this week, and we have an agenda item related to this request 
on their agenda.  So we should have a better sense of the timetable next 

4) We're finishing up our draft Errata response to the last two ISO/IEC 
26300 defect reports.  The technical resolutions were easy.  But we are 
running into an interesting mismatch between OASIS and ISO views of how 
errata/corrigenda are sequenced.  In OASIS, a published  Approved Errata 
document includes all corrections to date.  So if we issue a subsequent 
Approved Errata document, we're required to include all corrections from 
previous Approved Errata as well.  My understanding is that ISO does it 
differently, that corrigenda may reference previous corrigenda, but they 
typically do not include previous corrections verbatim in subsequent 

So we need to work through this, and find a way that works for OASIS as 
well as SC34.  We're currently working on a presentation of corrections 
where the OASIS Approved Errata would be a complete set of corrections, 
but with clear indications as to when each correction was made, so a DCOR 
could be prepared by extracting only those corrections not yet published 
in corrigenda.

5) We're also getting closer to finishing up ODF 1.2 Part 2, OpenFormula. 
We should have a CD 01 ready in another couple of weeks.  The plan is to 
revise that then to a CD 02 and then move that part to public review.
