Abstentions: Canada, France, Korea
Resolution 7 - JTC 1 Projects More Than 7 Years Old
Having reviewed document JTC 1 N 5943 submitted by the ITTF on JTC 1 projects more than 7 years old, JTC 1 resolves that:
Resolution 8 - SC 35 Scope
JTC 1 approves the revised SC 35 scope as contained in document JTC 1 N 5868. JTC 1 further instructs SC 35 to continue to explore with TC 159/SC 4 potential overlaps in order to avoid duplication of effort.
Objections: Canada, Germany
Resolution 9 - SC 6 Scope
JTC 1 approves the revised SC 6 scope as contained in document JTC 1 N 5838.

JTC 1 approves the revised SC 17 title and scope as contained in document JTC 1 N 5963 and requests SC 17 and SC 31 to resolve potential overlaps between their scopes in a way that fosters the existing high level of cooperation within the Technical Direction.
Abstentions: Italy, Switzerland
Resolution 11 Cooperative Agreement Between JTC 1 and SEDRIS
JTC 1 has received document JTC 1 N 5941, the Cooperative Agreement between JTC 1 and the SEDRIS Organization, and fully supports and looks forward to working with the SEDRIS Organization. However, JTC 1 requires further refinement and specificity from SC 24 before this agreement can be finalized.
Therefore, JTC 1 requests that SC 24 provide JTC 1 with supporting information detailing the benefits to be derived from this agreement. JTC 1 also requests SC 24 to narrow the breadth of this agreement and to limit the scope of the agreement to only that which is within the scope of SC 24.
When received from SC 24, JTC 1 further instructs its Secretariat to forward the revised Cooperative Agreement, along with the supporting information, to JTC 1 National Bodies for a 60-day letter ballot on finalization of the cooperative agreement.
Resolution 12a - Release of Standards which do not Fall under the JTC 1 Criteria
JTC 1 instructs its Secretariat to request approval from the ISO and IEC Councils to place the following documents on the World Wide Web:
ISO 646: 1991 - ISO 7-bit coded character set for information interchange
Abstentions: Australia, Germany, New Zealand, Switzerland, USA
Resolution 12b - Release of Standards which do not Fall under the JTC 1 Criteria
Although this does not fall under the criteria, the request is not for release of the standard but rather the portion of the standard relative to binary bitstreams. Therefore, the ITTF is asked to handle this request as appropriate.
ISO/IEC 13814-4:1998 (Binary Bitstreams)
Rationale: IEO/IEC 13818-4 bitstreams are conformance bitstreams for MPEG-2 Audio Part (IEO/IEC 13818-3). These are binary data, which is necessary for checking the conformity of a decoder. In order to avoid an appearance of an incompliant decoder on the market, it is desired to put such bitstreams on a certain Web site and to be available free of charge. It is recognized that such bitstreams are not included in the criteria of making standards freely available on the Web since it is not a standard document itself but a part of Annexes.
Resolution 13a - Release of Standards which Fall under the JTC 1 Criteria
JTC 1 instructs its Secretariat to request the ITTF to place the following documents on the World Wide Web:
TR 15285: 1998 - Operational model for characters and glyphs
Abstentions: France, Germany, New Zealand
Resolution 13b - Release of Standards which Fall under the JTC 1 Criteria
JTC 1 instructs its Secretariat to request the ITTF to place the following documents on the World Wide Web:
ISO/IEC 16509: 1999 - Year 2000 terminology
Abstentions: Germany, New Zealand
Resolution 14 - Process for NPs and Subdivisions
JTC 1 has reviewed the contributions concerning the activities of SC 2 and SC 2's procedure for determination of NPs. As a result of this discussion, JTC 1 notes again the current subdivision process used to initiate new parts of an existing work item (ie, SC submission of a PoW modifications document for 90 day review and comment by JTC 1 National Bodies.) National Bodies are reminded that they have responsibility to review with critical eye any proposal on modification of POW of SCs without an NP process initiated.
Resolution 15 - Requests to SC 2
JTC 1 instructs SC 2 to make its Roadmap (as mentioned in N5857) available to JTC 1 as part of its Business Plan.
JTC 1 further instructs SC 2 to identify those organizations which can be called upon to contribute historical scripts or scripts not well represented by native users such that this information can be shared in conjunction with work program.
Resolution 16 - Database of IT Terms and Definitions
JTC 1 welcomes and accepts the offer of the UK to populate a known database with JTC 1 terms and definitions that exist in an electronic format.
JTC 1 welcomes and accepts the offer from the IEC to provide the database for this purpose.
JTC 1 authorizes Mr. Martin Ford to undertake appropriate investigations with the IEC and other organizations if necessary and keep JTC 1 informed of progress, especially to notify any difficulties encountered. Mr. Ford is also asked to recommend to JTC 1 the appropriate means to make the database available for use once it is created.
Resolution 17 - Alignment of the ISO and IEC On-line Catalogues
Noting the issues raised by Sweden in document JTC 1 N 5921, Contribution concerning ISO and IEC On-line Catalogues, JTC 1 requests the ITTF to investigate any discrepancies between the two catalogues and to take appropriate remedial action. JTC 1 requests the ITTF to report back to JTC 1 at the next plenary meeting on any actions taken.
Resolution 18 - JTC 1 Recognition Program
JTC 1 reviewed document JTC 1 N 5925, Japanese proposal on the introduction of a JTC 1 recognition program, and as a result reminds its Subcommittees and National Bodies that the ITTF has already in place a system of appreciation. Upon publication of the relevant standard, and identification by the SC Secretariat of the appropriate project editor, the project editor receives from the ITTF a certificate of appreciation together with a complimentary copy of the standard.
Having reminded the subcommittees of the ITTF program, JTC 1 asks its National Bodies and SCs to submit ideas on other possible means of recognition related to the development of standards and the extension of such programs beyond project editors.
Resolution 19 - Patent Problems
JTC 1 reviewed document JTC 1 N 5927, Japanese proposal on patent problems in standardization, and agree that the issues raised are real and of concern to JTC 1. However, JTC 1 believes that patent issues are best addressed by ISO and IEC. Therefore, JTC 1 forwards document N 5927 to the ITTF for consideration by the appropriate bodies in ISO and IEC. The ITTF is requested to report back to JTC 1 at the earliest possible date the ISO and IEC deliberations on this issue.
In addition, JTC 1 instructs all members of JTC 1 (including National Bodies, SCs, WGs and other organizations) to remind their constituencies of the policy as well as the underlying premise of good faith of the Annex A (Reference to patent rights) of ISO/IEC Directives Part 2 (Amendment 1 1995-05-31) thoroughly and to follow the process properly and without disrupting the underlying premise.
Resolution 20 - Referencing to XML
JTC 1 accepts in principle document JTC 1 5917, the Japanese contribution regarding referencing XML in the title of SGML Technical Corrigenda. As these Technical Corrigenda have already been published by the ITTF, JTC 1 requests its Secretariat to forward document JTC 1 N 5917 to SC 34 for their consideration in future corrigenda and amendments to standards referencing XML.
Resolution 21 - National Body Voting Responsibilities
Having discussed the contribution from the Japanese National Body contained document JTC 1 N 5924, JTC 1 reminds its National Bodies of:
Resolution 22 - Guidance to the JTC 1 Chairman and Secretariat on External Requests for Information
JTC 1 understands that the Chairman and Secretariat frequently receive requests for information and for standardization proposals directly from National Body individuals and/or organizations that may not be aware of their JTC 1 National Body contacts. When such requests are received, the JTC 1 Chairman and Secretariat are instructed to forward them to the appropriate National Body contact for consideration and direct response to the requester.
Resolution 23 JTC 1 Performance Metrics
To be able to assess and manage its performance and to evaluate trends, JTC 1 instructs its SCs to provide by February 15, 2000 and in their future yearly Business Plan report to JTC 1 the following metrics:
The following table is a format to be used by each SC where the data
in the last column is an estimate:
|Attendance at Meetings|
|New Standards Published|
|Total Standards Published|
Resolution 24 Publicity for the ITTF web site of Publicly Available standards
JTC 1 requests the JTC 1 Secretariat and ITTF to publicize the existence of the ITTF web site, especially the section containing the Publicly Available JTC 1 standards. Any reasonable means should be taken to achieve this, including establishing links from the JTC 1 and ISO and IEC web sites, establishing links to the Publicly Available JTC 1 Standards from the ISO and IEC catalog, and using tags to facilitate the location of this web site by search engines.
Resolution 25 Publicity for the JTC 1 web site
Noting that the JTC 1 web site contains links to the JTC 1 SCs and recognized
PAS submitter web sites, JTC 1 requests its SCs and encourages its recognized
