nb writes "Concerned about the implications of the intolerable and closed processes of Ecma and ISO/IEC and the obvious corruption of several national decision-making committees, one member of a national standardization body has decided to step out of the confines of the ISO/IEC process and launch OpenISO.org with a Call For Participation for creating a "problem report" document about OOXML that can help ISO/IEC national member bodies with evaluating whether the changes that will be decided at the OOXML "Ballot Resolution Meeting" (BRM) in February are sufficient to address OOXML's most serious problems. After the BRM, national ISO/IEC member bodies have the opportunity of changing their vote."
