Hi!

Has anyone else been involved in EIF 2 and the definition of "open
standards" for egovernment? Over the recent days it appears that the
previous definition in EIF 1 didn't survive in the new version.
Annoyingly the public consultation of EIF 2 seems to have ended a
couple of weeks ago.

The problem has been covered in media here:

EU Wants to Re-define “Closed” as “Nearly Open”
http://www.computerworlduk.com/toolbox/open-source/blogs/index.cfm?entryid=2620&blogid=14

The EIF 2 draft can be downloaded here:
http://www.wikileaks.org/wiki/European_Interoperability_Framework_2_draft%2C_2009

And EIF 1 here:
http://ec.europa.eu/idabc/en/document/3473

Those of you who are in touch with people in EU governments may want
to contact them to make sure they are aware of the issue.

Regards,

Peter Krantz
