Subject: RE: TA Specification Review
Anders et al -
I have no problems with this schedule with one caveat - if postponing the vote until Jan 4 delays the QR team review and ebXML community review process, thus leading to a delay on voting at the Vancouver Plenary, then we MUST vote sooner. That said, I've sent email to Klaus and Tim McGrath asking for their advice on the scheduling and timing issues. If the schedule you propose below works, then we shall proceed according to your schedule If not, then, I'm afraid we'll need to vote earlier.
FYI - To address the comments that Tim informally made w/r/t the BP section, I've inserted an updated introduction (section 9.2.1) which Karsten and Paul Levine provided. Please consider this document, ebXML_TA_v0.95 to be the document which will be voted on by the TA team. I'm still awaiting working from Nikola, but this can be dealt with during the wider review and comments disposition.

Subject: Re: TA Specification Review
This is my proposal, which is according to the ebXML time plan as amended at
this week's steering committee. It is my final one as, I am embarrassed to
say, do not intend to work over Christmas. I suggest any appeal to be
addressed to the executive team.
1. Voting by the Technical Architecture PT - 4th January (a vote next week
would not allow the team sufficient time for review, many will be on
holidays and no time will be gained)
2. Review by the Quality Review PT -5th to 9th January
3. Public review - 10th January to 23rd January
4. Editing/integration - 24th January to 2nd February
5. ebXML vote - 16th February
