We (OASIS ODF and OpenOffice.org/IBM
Symphony community) have been working on interoperability for a while now.
Google Docs, OpenOffice, Lotus Symphony, KOffice, etc. recognize the issues.
There is more work to be done. To that end, we are working to create a
new TC at OASIS focused on ODF Implementation, Interoperability and Conformance.
Please consider joining and participating.
Rob Weir announced a new discussion
list at OASIS this week, working with Mary McRae our OASIS manager. You
can find the open invitation here: http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/oiic-formation-discuss/200806/msg00001.html
Here's Rob's opening 'welcome' email
sent on June 3rd:
A quick note to say hello and welcome.
To those who don't know me, I'm Rob Weir from IBM. I'm Co-Chair
of the OASIS ODF TC.
We're just getting started up on this TC formation discussion list. Mary
McRae sent out the Call for Participation last night to the OASIS members
and the TC announcement list: http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/oiic-formation-discuss/200806/msg00001.html
I'm also forwarding the invite to other interested parties, the ODF Fellowship,
the ODF Alliance, attendees of the ODF Interop Camp we had last year, etc.
Please forward to invite to anyone else you might think would be interested.
Since the CFP just went out, I expect it will take a day or two for people
to process their emails and sign up for the list.
So until then, it would be good if those of you who have joined already,
would give a quick post to announce yourself, so we have a sense of when
we have critical mass signed up.

||[Lf_desktop] An important idea
I would like to see the Desktop group discuss the possibilities
of Open Office working better with Google. It would pretty much take
the wind out of MS's sails with Live Office.http://blogs.computerworld.com/why_google_should_embrace_openoffice
