The Austin Group today announced commencement of the review of Draft 5 of the joint revision to POSIX and the Single UNIX Specification.

The Austin Common Standards Revision Group (CSRG) is a joint technical working group established to consider the matter of a common revision of ISO/IEC 9945-1, ISO/IEC 9945-2, IEEE Std 1003.1, IEEE Std 1003.2 and the appropriate parts of the Single UNIX Specification.

Draft 5 is the first recirculation of the complete draft of the specification. Concurrent IEEE balloting and The Open Group Company Review will take place on this draft. Draft 5 totals some 3682 pages. Please see the reviewers notes which accompany the draft for details of the changes in this draft.

There is an eight week review period commencing today and completing at 8am UK time on February 15th 2001. A plenary review meeting is being held during the week commencing March 5th to process the comments arising from the Draft 5 review period. Comments should be sent to the review reflector and use the aardvark comment format (see http://www.opengroup.org/austin/aardvark/format.html for more information).
