11 TC Process Updates for 2011 Definition of Statement of UseStatement of Use "Statement of Use", with respect to a Committee Specification, is a written statement by an OASIS Organizational Member stating that it is successfully using or implementing that specification in accordance with the conformance clauses specified in Section 2.18, identifying those clauses that apply, and stating whether its use included the interoperation of multiple independent implementations. A Statement of Use must be endorsed by the Organizational Member's Primary Representative. Importance for TCs: Ensure that Statements of Use identify specific clauses from the specs Conformance clauses and are submitted by or confirmed by the Primary member Copyright © OASIS 2012

12 TC Process Updates for 2011 Clarification for electronic ballotselectronic ballots 3 rd paragraph now reads: "Electronic Voting: TCs may conduct electronic ballots, either by using the TC's general mail list or the publicly archived electronic voting functionality provided by OASIS. The minimum period allowed for electronic voting shall be seven days; the TC may specify a longer voting period for a particular electronic ballot. Any Work Product Ballot conducted as an electronic ballot must permit each voter to choose "yes", "no" or "abstain. Eligible voters may change their vote up until the end of the voting period. Importance for TCs: Dont set up a ballot that prevents votes from being changed; TC Admin may declare it invalid Also, remember that even electronic votes held by email stay open for 7 days Copyright © OASIS 2012

13 TC Process Updates for 2011 New Sect. 2.16 for maintenance activitiesmaintenance activities New section reads: (1) Only one TC at a time may perform a Maintenance Activity on an OASIS Standards Final Deliverable. (2) Maintenance Activity on an OASIS Standards Final Deliverable is always within the scope of the TC that created the deliverable, whether or not the TC's Charter explicitly references it. (3) Maintenance Activity on an OASIS Standards Final Deliverable may be done by a TC other than the TC that originated the deliverable, if: (a) the name of the OASIS Standards Final Deliverable to be maintained is listed as a deliverable in its Charter, and (b) if the originating TC is not closed, it has consented to the Maintenance Activity by a Special Majority Vote. Importance for TCs: Minimal for active TCs. TCs considering closing may want to consider chartering TCs for maintenance Copyright © OASIS 2012
