That's a tough one to answer.  Your best way to get "the continuation of the
story" would be to get involved in the various efforts as an insider.  You will
still probably not get the full story, but more than you would otherwise.  The
next best bet is to get information from someone who is an insider, perhaps via
this list.

I would not rely on any publications or trade journals for information.  Most
of what I've seen reported is either inaccurate, over summarized, over hyped,
over dramatized about potential conflict, or all of the above.

As a very general rule (at the risk of over generalization) CEFACT (at least
EWG) has been more representative of the user community while OASIS has been
more representative of vendors.  I see a bit of that in the UBL TC and from
what I know of the ebTWG (as an outsider).
