Gunfight at the WS Corral · As a stu­dent of WS-Geography and WS-Politics (and there’s a lot to learn), my eye­brows were first raised by a point­er to a warmish protest (I quote: “... the draft Oa­sis Web Ser­vices Reli­a­bil­i­ty spec­i­fi­ca­tion was sav­aged in a most un­for­tu­nate man­ner... We are al­so in­formed that the IBM as­sas­si­na­tion at­tempt will be post­ed on the Oa­sis web site which fur­ther adds in­sult to injury...”) con­cern­ing a pre­sen­ta­tion en­ti­tled Crit­i­cal Com­par­i­son of WS-RM and WS-R, which is in­deed post­ed on the Oa­sis site. How­ev­er, to keep things fair, the site al­so has a point­er to the re­sponse from the WSRM TC. I to­tal­ly have no opin­ion as to who’s right, or if the prob­lem is a fruit­ful area for stan­dard­iza­tion work. But I won­der why, if there are dif­fer­ing ideas on how to solve this prob­lem, and there is a stan­dards or­ga­ni­za­tion at work, the dif­fer­ing ideas aren’t be­ing hashed out in the stan­dards or­ga­ni­za­tion. Clues may be found in the email thread be­gin­ning here. It’s tough for strangers to learn a new land­scape when it’s rav­aged by war­ring tribes.
