Denmark votes "yes" on IS29500 COR1 and FPDAM1

I know it has been a couple of weeks, but I just wanted to share current development with you.

On September 7th (in Danish), the Danish mirror committee to ISO/IEC JTC1 SC34 met at Danish Standards in Charlottenlund. On the agenda was, amongst other things, processing of documents under ballot. The relevant documents to WG4 was these

As appointed expert from Danish Standards in WG4, I have been working hard with the other experts in WG4 on these papers and I have for each meeting in Denmark provided oversights to the mirror committee on the current work. The members of the Danish committee have access to the same set of papers that I have, so we have primarily been discussing the more controversial ones - like usage of ISO-8601 dates in transitional files, reintroducing ST_OnOff in transitional schemas and changing the namespace name for strict files. A couple of times Danish committee members have requested information on more "trivial stuff", and we have then discussed this.

At the meeting of September 7th, I gave a quick sporadic overview of the more tough parts of COR1 and AMD1 and no comments were presented. We talked a bit about general principles of the work in WG4, but that was basically that.

After this, Denmark (Danish Standards) approved the document sets for COR1 and AMD1.

Obviously I think this is great news and the chairman of the Danish committee expressed his appreciation of the work put into creating these files.

You are still working with 29500?  man, you have only *one* life...  get the most of it !

What is the timeline for these corrections and amendments to reach ISO/IEC publication status ?

Hi hAl,

I'm not sure, actually. I cannot find the papers right now, but I think we are talking about January/February 10$0 - pending of course of approval of both the COR1 and the FPDAM1.

About approval I have heard very little yet. I have heard of one country voting no and - apart from some local Danish IBM bullsipt - we approved by unanimous vote here in Denmark.
