Joint Meeting Agenda (Austin/M12)
12-15 September 2006
Reading, UK, hosted by The Open Group
The goal of this meeting is to review draft 1 comments
for the 200x revision, and continue processing inbound defect reports
so that they can be addrssed in draft 2.
Some initial topic areas
that will be considered are as follows:
* Outstanding defect reports and Interpretation Requests that
may require changes to the standard not permitted through
the Technical Corrigenda Process (see document Austin/SD5).
* New interfaces being submitted through The Open Group (the
"strawman" interfaces document) and from other parties.
* Possible areas where alignment with IS 23360 can be improved.
A large part of the meeting will be spent doing issue resolution based on Aardvark comments submitted against Draft 1 and also those outstanding on the 2004 edition of the standard was completed. Attendees are assumed to be familiar with the proposed dispositions for the aardvark prior to the attendance of the meeting - these will not be discussed unless there is some disagreement with the proposal.
Materials will be available at the meeting in electronic form on a reference CD-ROM and mountable USB memory stick. Please familiarise yourself with the documents produced from earlier Austin Group meetings ; these documents are available in the online document register.
The meeting will consist of full time plenary sessions.
