For more information, see the OASIS WSDM TC home page at:


Some initial impressions (my own):
- WSDM TC has bitten off a _very_ large problem space (see the
  agenda slides for all the other standards organizations that
  they've already identified for liason and collaboration)
- WSDM TC has received technology submissions from a number of 
  different vendors (players in Web Svcs and/or systems mgmt)
- WSDM TC has a far too aggressive schedule (see the charter
- WSDM TC may well be open to input from PWG (although input 
  appears to require OASIS membership)

The best route to influencing the OASIS WSDM TC may be through
renewed collaboration of PWG and DMTF CIM (Core Info Model) for
print systems modelling and management.
