Happy New Year!    (01)

1. I would like to let everyone know that the UBL - Universal Business 
Language - Technical Committee is imminently making the next release 
of their interim work product for review by the industry.    (02)

2. One of the charters of this forum is to "identify ontological 
engineering approaches that might be applied to the UBL effort."
(see http://ontolog.cim3.org/forums/ontolog/0209/msg00000.html#nid03)    (03)

3. We intend to collectively contribute to that review effort, and the 
purpose of this message is draw everyone's attention to this upcoming 
activity.    (04)

4. What we can possibly do, after we are provided access to the UBL 
work products, would be:    (05)

   (a) to review the work and provide general (on non-ontological 
issues) feedback, individually, to UBL directly;    (06)

   (b) to bring up ontology or ontological engineering issues for 
discussion within this forum, and then provide a compilation of our 
findings and recommendations (possibly in the form of a position 
paper) to UBL collectively;    (07)

   (c) Consider making an attempt to "ontologize" the UBL work product 
  -- but, obviously, we need to discuss the what? and how? of this 
effort in more depth.    (08)

   (d) plus, anything else members of this community would propose and 
agree to take on.    (09)

5. For those members who are not very familiar with the OASIS-UBL TC 
and their work, please take a moment to browse their website at:    (010)

   http://oasis-open.org/committees/ubl/    (011)

In particular, the two recent presentations made by UBL TC members (at 
the XML Conference in Baltimore, MD, USA in Dec. 2002), as highlighted 
at the UBL site, would provide a succinct picture of what UBL is all 
about. See:    (012)

UBL TC Vice Chair Mark Crawford gave the UBL keynote:

Schema designers will find Eve Maler's talk on Schema Rules for UBL of 
particular interest:

6. I'll get back to you all, shortly, once I have specific information 
to the new UBL release.    (015)
