Dear OMG Space DTF members, CCSDS SM&C WG members and XTCE enthusiasts,

this note calls for the final internal review for updating XTCE (currently 
at version 1.1, see 
http://public.ccsds.org/publications/archive/660x0b1.pdf) to version 1.2. 

During the last CCSDS SM&C WG meeting in May 2010 in Portsmouth, VA, which 
was attended also by Brad Kizzort, co-chair of the OMG Space DTF, it was 
agreed to initiate the update of the XTCE BB. The agreed strategy for the 
update is to fix only bugs, minor improvements and annotation issues and 
leave larger problems for a later update.

The material for the review is available in the review package:


In particular, the file "xtce_review.doc" contains the full list of RIDs 
collected in the last few years. In order to facilitate the review, Kevin 
Rice has kindly provided his proposed dispositions in line with the agreed 
update strategy (fix only bugs, minor improvements and annotation issues) 
in the "Status" field among the following choices:
Accepted -- proposed for inclusion in XTCE 1.2 
Rejected -- the RID is not considered appropriate for XTCE
Postponed -- it will not be included in XTCE 1.2, but it will be kept for 
future updates 
Discuss -- to be discussed at the telecon
The zip archive includes also XML files which provide details on the 
proposed implementation for the RIDs flagged "Accepted" and examples. 

Please review the material. Comments should be returned to Kevin 
(kevin.rice at nasa.gov) no later than June 18. Depending on the received 
comments, a telecon may be needed, which is tentatively scheduled for June 
23 16:00 CET.
Further instructions and material are in the package, start with the 
index.html file.
Best regards,


Dr. Mario Merri
