Still Misleading
Authored by: Andy Updegrove on Tuesday, March 04 2008 @ 10:06 AM CST
Minor details aside, this is exactly what I was suggesting:
BRM should report out that it worked a small fraction of the issues, managed to get a number of improvements voted on to make to DIS 29500.  However, on an overall vote the BRM could not recommend the results to be standardized.   Based on progress made at the meeting it would take at least a year to get to the point where a majority of the members would vote in approval.

Based on this, we would suggest that no additional vote be taken, and the issue referred to the maintainers/enhancers (OASIS Open Document Format for Office Applications (OpenDocument) TC) of ISO/IEC 26300 for consolidation in that standard. 
This would have been, to my mind, much more useful and harder to be misrepresented.
