> Subject: Updates from OASIS ODF TC
> 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:
> http://tools.oasis-
> open.org/issues/secure/IssueNavigator.jspa?mode=hide&requestId=10082
> 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
> week.
> 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
> corrigenda.
> 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
> 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.
