Info for AU folks wishing to comment on OOXML to Standards Australia
Wednesday, August 15 2007 @ 12:55 PM EDT

I have the information for those of you *who live in Australia* and who wish to send comments to Standards Australia. You can find a link to the template you need to use here. Or just download it. You fill it in and send it to Michael Langdon, Project Manager, Commerce at Standards Australia, michael.langdon at by the deadline, which is Tuesday. Here are the precise instructions:
Dear Forum Participant, Comment submitter, Interested party:

Attached is the ISO template for comments for DRAFT INTERNATIONAL STANDARD ISO/IEC 29500, Information technology Office Open XML file formats. Please insert your comments in this template.

Comments will be collated in a master template. The master comment template will be updated on a daily basis until COB 21 August 2007 which is the close off date for comments, after which collated comments will be provided to the Standards Australia Communications, IT & eCommerce (CITeC) sector board meeting.

Please note the structure of the ISO comments template. There are three types of comment:
ge = general, te = technical, and ed = editorial.
Comment type can be listed in column 4. Comments can also list a clause number(s), paragraph, figure, table or note number. Insert comments and list the proposed change in the next column.

Email the template back for addition to the master comment template. Please do not email other Standards Australia employees, or email lists, this as the comments just come back to me for compilation anyway:

You may wish to review Lee Welburn's notes on what happened at the meeting on August 8.

For PJ - The ITPro link in newspicks
Authored by: Anonymous on Wednesday, August 15 2007 @ 06:14 PM EDT
Hi PJ,

IMHO you should ask ITPro and Richard Hillesley if you could archive this
article permanently here as a "primer" for what SCO v World+Cat is
(soon to be was!) all about.

In four-odd years of reading and often posting on Groklaw I don't think I've
ever seen the entire show, from start to finish, so effectively (and accurately)
condensed down into such a short dissertation.

It deserves to be headed "So exactly what was SCO v IBM/Novell/et

Just a thought.

    There is help in the form of a set of generic Technical Comments available at NoOOXML.

    Don't forget to use the contradiction references noted here .
    The template requires every comment to have a relevant clause+subclause+paragraph reference.

    More shortcuts here .

    Just to clarify that from Michael's wording I took the references to clauses,
    pargaraphs etc. as optional. I didn't have these links when I submitted to
    Standards Australia 2 days ago and I just filled in the 2 Comments columns and
    labelled them all 'ge' (general comments).

    Does anyone know? Are we dutifully following our corporate overlords?
