[xml-dev] creation of OASIS TCs

XML Developers:

OASIS is unique among standards organizations in that our technical
agenda is driven by our members. Any group of three or more OASIS
members can form a technical committee (TC) to create specifications
related to the interoperability of structured information systems.

If you have an idea for technical work but haven't formed a complete
plan or mobilized support from others, we may be able to help. The OASIS
TC Process allows members to create an open discussion list in order to
gauge community interest and discuss charter and scope of a potential

In addition to new work, OASIS TCs can also be formed to take
existing work to the next level. Many current OASIS TCs, in fact, are
advancing technical work that began outside the Consortium. For example,
the OASIS Security Services TC has converged work from the AuthXML and
S2ML groups into a single SAML specification; by bringing this work to
OASIS, the two groups consolidated their efforts, eliminated overlap and
increased participation and acceptance for the final work result.

If you have an idea for technical work or if you're involved in
developing an XML specification -- either within your company or through
a vendor group or industry dot-org -- please contact me for more details
on how further development within OASIS might be beneficial.
