Hello Rob


Good to hear from you. I had heard indirectly about your change of focus,
but it's good to have it confirmed directly by you. You have played a key
role in the work of WG 6 from the outset for which I am very grateful. I
appreciate your willingness to provide some continuity while Oliver gets
into his new role.


We haven't got a WG 6 meeting in the calendar at the moment, but I'd ideally
like to schedule one for some time before the SC 34 Closing Plenary in Kyoto
(2014-09-26). I'd be grateful if you could suggest some dates that would be
convenient for you and Oliver, when you would be able to introduce Oliver to
the Working Group, possibly on a Wednesday in September at the usual time (9
a.m. Eastern or thereabouts).


Kind regards,

Subject: Some changes at the OASIS ODF TC


Hello Francis, 

I wanted to make sure you and my WG6 colleagues were aware of some recent
changes at the OASIS ODF TC.   My work at IBM has changed and I'm no longer
directly involved with document formats and editors.   So it made sense for
me to resign as Chairman of the ODF TC, and pass the baton to someone who
can give this role the focused attention it deserves.   The TC has elected
Oliver-Rainner Wittmann as its new co-Chair, joining Patrick Durusau.
Oliver is a long-time member of the ODF TC and an implementer of ODF in
Apache OpenOffice. 

For the near term I'll remain as the liaison from the ODF TC to WG6, to
provide some continuity.   Chris Rae is now our TC liaison to SC34.   You
can see our current list of liaisons on our website here:
