Hi Juergen,

Your note below does not specifies what happens to people included in the 
OMG mailing lists who act as liaisons to OMG for other organisations, in 
particular CCSDS. Could you please clarify?

Dear space at omg.org subscribers,

Over the years, many OMG mailing lists have been made open, available for 
subscription by non-members, in order to spur innovation and 
collaboration.  While this has been very successful to drive discussion on 
potential standards development and engage a broader community, it 
presents some risk and the need for a measured response.  We are 
appreciative of the conversations that happen on the mailing lists but 
only OMG members are governed by the IP agreements companies sign when 
they become members.  Open lists increase the risk of IP that has not been 
granted to OMG making its way into an OMG specification.  Weve spoken with 
many members on the pros and cons of open mailing lists and OMG management 
has decided that: 
New mailing lists, for task forces, special interest groups, and working 
groups may be requested by the chairs to be open for one year, or until 
the presiding group issues an RFx, whichever is sooner. 
Old mailing lists that are open may remain open for one year from today, 
or for three months if there is an open RFx or submission in process. 
As always, RTF and FTF mailing lists are closed. 

As there currently is a RFP in process the space at omg.org mailing list will 
be set to "Members-only" 3 months from today, on April 3, 2020

Best regards,


Juergen Boldt
