[OASIS members] OASIS TC Call for Participation: WSDM TC (Distributed Mgmt)

This is the announcement of the new Web Services Distributed Management TC.
The Management Protocol TC disbanded after they decided that the work that
needed to be done,
management of any resource using Web services, didn't include a management
specific protocol.

This group will also be looking at the specifics of managing a web service
as one of those 'any resources'.
They are interested in basing this work off of the work being done by the
WS Arch WG, MTF when it is approved
by the WS Arch WG.

I think that the WSArch WG should think about developing a formal laison
with this group in the April timeframe.
I'm sure that they will have interesting experiences as they try to apply
the Web Services architecture to the
domain of Management problems.  They may be able to help validate the
architecture we define and provide
new requirements.

Subject:    [OASIS members] OASIS TC Call for Participation: WSDM TC
       (Distributed Mgmt)

A new OASIS technical committee is being formed. The OASIS Web Services
Distributed Management Technical Committee (WSDM TC) has been proposed
by the following members of OASIS: Andrea Westerinen, Cisco; Andreas
Maier, IBM; Ben Block, Intersoft; Daniel M. Foody, Actional Corporation;
Dick Spellman, Sun; Ed Day, Objective Systems; Ellen Stokes, IBM; Fred
Carter, AmberPoint; Gil Kirkpatrick, NetPro; Guru Bhat, Sun; Heather
Kreger, IBM; Hedy Alban, Effective Analyses; Igor Sedhuck, Computer
Associates; Jim Willits, HP; Karl Schopmeyer, Cisco; Mark Potts, Talking
Blocks; Matt Green, webMethods; Richard Nikula, BMC Software; Sekhar
Sarukkai, Confluence Software; Veena Subrahmanyam, HP; Yoshimasa
Masuoka, Hitachi; Homayoun Pourheidari, HP; and Winston Bumpus, Novell.

The proposal for a new TC meets the requirements of the OASIS TC Process
(see http://oasis-open.org/committees/process.shtml), and is appended to
this message. The proposal, which includes a statement of purpose, list
of deliverables, and proposed schedule, will constitute the TC's
charter. The TC Process allows these items to be clarified (revised) by
the TC members; such clarifications (revisions), as well as submissions
of technology for consideration by the TC and the beginning of technical
discussions, may occur no sooner than the TC's first meeting.

To become a member of this new TC you must 1) be an employee of an OASIS
member organization or an Individual member of OASIS; 2) notify the TC
chair, Winston Bumpus (wbumpus@novell.com) of your intent to participate
at least 15 days prior to the first meeting; and 3) attend the first
meeting on 2 April 2003. You should also subscribe to the TC's mail
list. Note that membership in OASIS TCs is by individual, and not by
organization. You must be eligible for participation at the time you
time you notify the chair.

The private mail list wsdm@lists.oasis-open.org is for committee
discussions. TC members as well as any other interested OASIS members
should subscribe to the list by going to the mail list web page at
http://lists.oasis-open.org/ob/adm.pl, or by sending a message to
wsdm-request@lists.oasis-open.org with the word "subscribe" as the body
of the message. (Note that subscribing to the mail list does not make
you a member of the TC; to become a member you must contact the TC chair
and attend the first meeting as described in the preceeding paragraph.)

A public comment list will be available for the public to make comments
on the work of this TC; a message may be sent to the TC via the address

The archives of both of these mail lists are visible to the public at
