In a recent HL7 eNews there was an informative article about projects and documents which the TSC have approved. 


The TSC approved the following projects for the week of 7 June 2010:

  • Monitor and Maintain the HL7 Project Approval Process; for Project Services WG of Technical and Support Services Steering Division (T3SD), Project Insight ID#530. This project will update the HL7 project approval process to address questions and situations that have been posed since its 2008 release. A document will identify the tasks, their owners and how best to accomplish the tasks.
  • MIF-based Publishing Project - Phase II for Tooling WG of T3SD, Project Insight ID# 665. Co-sponsored by V3 Publishing. The project will complete the implementation of a fully MIF-based publishing process. Initial stages of the project were accomplished by January 2010. The transforms and process that have been developed to use MIF as the sole input for the publishing process will be integrated into the production process that produces the ballot materials. The project will also work to provide authoring and editing capabilities for input MIF files using open source tooling.
