Regarding Item 6.1:

"Although no formal position was taken by the meeting, the balance of view 
during the meeting seemed to be in favour of retaining 26300 to align with ODF 
1.1, which will remain a supported OASIS standard after ODF 1.2 has been 
published, and creating a new numbered standard to align with ODF 1.2"

While I understand the reasoning behind the view that perhaps ODF 1.2 should 
have a new numbered standard may I present a non-technical reason for 
suggestind that IS 26300 should be retained?

Suprisingly thought it may seem, it is not clear that administrations (more 
specifically UKG) would be able to get their heads around the new number. UKG 
struggles with standards generally.

I caution against anythin that could lead to the unintended consequence of 
(even) slower adoption of ODF.

This is not an unevidenced assertion.  

May I ask you to look at the following?





Thank you

Gerry Gavigan
