Subject: Letter ballot on Withdrawal of ISO/IEC TR 14652

At its last meeting, CT22 formulated the position below regarding ISO/IEC TR 14652. The purpose of this letter ballot is to approve this position.

According to the JTC 1 Directives, 16.4.1 (Maintenance of Type 1 and
Type 2 Technical Reports),

------- TRs of types 1 and 2 shall be subject to review by JTC 1 not
later than three years after their publication. The aim of such a
review shall be to re-examine the situation which resulted in the
publication of a TR and if possible to achieve the agreement necessary
for the publication of an IS to replace the TR. The SC responsible for the type 1 or type 2 TR project shall
make a recommendation to JTC 1 prior to the third year after
publication, stating whether the TR should be:

. Converted to an IS without change;
. Revised and published as an IS;
. Confirmed for continuation as a TR;
. Revised for publication as a revision to the TR;
. Withdrawn.

Noting that such a review for ISO/IEC TR 14652:2004 is overdue, the
U.S.  requests that an item be placed on this year's plenary agenda
for review purposes, and that the following resolution be voted on in
relation to that TR:

Resolution 07-xx: Withdrawal of TR 14652

ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 22 cancels project, requests its
secretariat conduct a letter ballot to withdraw TR 14652, and further
instructs its Secretariat to inform SC 35 of this decision, and the
result of the ballot.

ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 22 further instructs the project editor of this
project to provide a copy of all documents relevant to the canceled
project (including any drafts) to Keld Simonsen for archiving.

The ballot closes on September 13, 2007.
