» OOXML protest brings a result

Yesterday the Polish Committee for Standardization announced, that the Technical Committee 182 charged with decision on OOXML standardisation will be supplemented with two representatives of the Free and Open Source Software Foundation (FWiOO). The decision must have been influenced by a large number of important mistakes in the format specification and also the open consultation made by PKN, which I also participated in with my humble letter.

The voting of KT 182 will take place already on August 30th. One should note, that there was one vote before, but within a different technical committee (KT 171). 82% of members were against OOXML. However, PKN decided that KT 182 will be more competent to make the decision, hence another voting.
