Subject: XML Protocol WG's Last Call for Review of SOAP 1.2 Attachment

I. This is the last call announcement from the XML Protocol Working Group
(XMLP WG) for review of the "SOAP 1.2 Attachment Feature" specification.

II. Request for Document Review.

The XMLP WG asks for reviews of the following document:

-- SOAP 1.2 Attachment Feature [1]
Abstract. "This document defines a SOAP feature that represents an abstract
model for SOAP attachments. It provides the basis for the creation of SOAP
bindings that transmit such attachments along with a SOAP envelope, and
provides for reference of those attachments from the envelope. SOAP
attachments are described using the notion of a compound document structure
consisting of a primary SOAP message part and zero or more related
documents parts known as attachments."

All comments on this document should be sent to xmlp-comments@w3.org. If
appropriate, please include section-references in your comments. The
appropriate forum for discussion of any of this document is the public W3C
xml-dist-app mailing list [2].

III. XMLP WG Intentions.

-- The Attachment Feature is on a separate Recommendation track from the
main SOAP 1.2 specification. However, after Last Call for the Attachment
Feature, the XMLP WG intends to conduct subsequent reviews of the
Attachment Feature in conjunction with the SOAP 1.2 specification.

IV. The Last Call review period ends at 5p Pacific Time, 15 October 2002.

V. The following W3C Working Groups are especially invited to provide
review comments:

-- I18N
-- QA
-- Semantic Web Activity (WG's therein)
-- Web Services Architecture
-- Web Services Description
-- XForms
-- XML Core
-- XML Encryption
-- XML Signature

VI. Patent Disclosures.

A listing and summary of the IPR statements by XMLP WG members is available

VII. The XMLP WG's decision to request Last Call is minuted at [4]
