WS-I dumped off at OASIS - The last stand for WS-*

pencil icon, that"s clickable to start editing the post
All right that's push the drama a bit. WS-I has seemed to dead for quite some time and I still think there's a need for it, IF you're into the WS-* stack. I actually thought that it had already gone somewhere else but found this piece of news from OASIS: WS-I Transitions to OASIS. The dear Mr. Liscia has to believe in revitalization, though I'm not so optimistic on that point.

Update 11. november It's now officially closed, with this press release from WS-I: WS-I Completes Web Services Interoperability Standards Work [PDF], with these finale products:
The release of WS-I member approved final materials for Basic Profile (BP) 1.2 and 2.0, and Reliable Secure Profile (RSP) 1.0 fulfills WS-I’s last milestone as an organization. By publishing the final three profiles, WS-I marks the completion of its work. Stewardship over WS-I’s assets, operations and mission will transition to OASIS (Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards), a group of technology vendors and customers that drive development and adoption of open standards.
