Again, this is a part of an effort to reduce the length of the article OpenDocument. It still needs to be fully wikified and have its references moved from that article. --Thephotoman 04:45, 28 December 2005 (UTC)

The last paragraph needs to be updated to reflect the approval of ODF as an ISO standard. -- 16:45, 3 May 2006 (UTC)

Merge with OpenDocument/Standardization[edit]

I think deleting all the anti-MS nonsense makes the article's size manageable; otherwise, maybe adding a subsection OpenDocument/Stantardization may be enough.--- Louie 19:03, 29 May 2006 (UTC)

The section Next Steps is inaccurate, because ODF is now a full ISO standard. The "Next Steps" are maintenance and the revision for ODF 1.2 in 2007. Some of this material might be better moved to some section on ISO procedure for PAS standards. The paragraph on ODF going to W3C is dubious/ludicrous, because W3C is an organization that does web standards not office standards; they will not be interested in diluting HTML.

There has been quite much controvercy about Microsoft gettin "special treatment" because of so-called fast track process. But didn't in fact the same fasttrack-process take place in ODF too? If this is true, then the article should clearly state that. (talk) 06:20, 8 May 2008 (UTC)

Article name[edit]

How about just OpenDocument standardization? It's simple and it doesn't imply that the possibly disparate standardization efforts are part of a single process, as OpenDocument standardization process does. Wmahan. 04:54, 12 June 2006 (UTC)

Conceded. I'll go ahead and do the move... Louie 15:46, 12 June 2006 (UTC)

unencyclopedic + importance[edit]

The article is somewhat out of sync with the main article

The current state is not clearly document, neither is the standardization process (maybe a time line would help?)

Furthermore the topic is already covered in OpenDocument and probably does not require a separat article

Member list needs verifcation

I'd call it a stub, not unencyclopedic. Inasmuch as Apple's Intel transition is worthy of an article, this is. Switching and standardizing to OpenDocument is significant, and documenting the process is essential. Sean Hayford O'Leary 01:46, 2 September 2006 (UTC)


I removed the "importance" tag, since this subject is undoubtably notable, as proved by the many references in the main article. However, some cleanup may be required. See Talk:OpenDocument#Standardization, again.
