[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

A new OASIS technical committee is being formed. The OASIS Web Services 
Distributed Management Technical Committee (WSDM TC) has been proposed 
by the following members of OASIS: Andrea Westerinen, Cisco; Andreas 
Maier, IBM; Ben Block, Intersoft; Daniel M. Foody, Actional Corporation; 
Dick Spellman, Sun; Ed Day, Objective Systems; Ellen Stokes, IBM; Fred

Sarukkai, Confluence Software; Veena Subrahmanyam, HP; Yoshimasa 
Masuoka, Hitachi; Homayoun Pourheidari, HP; and Winston Bumpus, Novell.

The proposal for a new TC meets the requirements of the OASIS TC Process 
(see http://oasis-open.org/committees/process.shtml), and is appended to 
this message. The proposal, which includes a statement of purpose, list 
of deliverables, and proposed schedule, will constitute the TC's 
charter. The TC Process allows these items to be clarified (revised) by 
the TC members; such clarifications (revisions), as well as submissions 
of technology for consideration by the TC and the beginning of technical 
discussions, may occur no sooner than the TC's first meeting.

To become a member of this new TC you must 1) be an employee of an OASIS 
member organization or an Individual member of OASIS; 2) notify the TC 
chair, Winston Bumpus (wbumpus@novell.com) of your intent to participate 
at least 15 days prior to the first meeting; and 3) attend the first 
meeting on 2 April 2003. You should also subscribe to the TC's mail 
list. Note that membership in OASIS TCs is by individual, and not by 
organization. You must be eligible for participation at the time you 
time you notify the chair.

The private mail list wsdm@lists.oasis-open.org is for committee 
discussions. TC members as well as any other interested OASIS members 
should subscribe to the list by going to the mail list web page at 
http://lists.oasis-open.org/ob/adm.pl, or by sending a message to 
wsdm-request@lists.oasis-open.org with the word "subscribe" as the body 
of the message. (Note that subscribing to the mail list does not make 
you a member of the TC; to become a member you must contact the TC chair 
and attend the first meeting as described in the preceeding paragraph.)

A public comment list will be available for the public to make comments 
on the work of this TC; a message may be sent to the TC via the address
