Title somewhat misleading - and why I think its good news
Authored by: Anonymous on Friday, February 29 2008 @ 12:56 PM CST
Andy,

I think the title of this piece is a bit misleading. Maybe the title will be correct, 30 days from now, when the final vote is clear, but right now I would say OOXML approval was not at stake at the BRM, deciding what ooxml would look like was at stake.

A second comment would be your remark that voting at the BRM should be limited to P-countries, I had the impression Alex Browns called the shots at the BRM, and what he says goes. An unenviable task but so far I think he did as best as he or anyone could.

Actually, I kind of like the outcome of the BRM. One thing that always worried me was that with all those comments being discussed and changed (one would hope) the final text would not be available within 30 days. With this outcome the final text of ecma 376 will be available within a week and it is really clear what the NB's are voting for

ps: well, really clear, it must be somewhere in those 9000+ pages ;-)
