CEE Update – Aug 2010

Reposted (from here) for those who don’t monitor public Common Event Expression (CEE) log standard effort.

“First of all, let me answer the question that is in all of your heads: No, CEE is not dead... After a slow start, the work pace has picked up over the past couple of months. I apologize for the extremely long delay in posting any details regarding the state of CEE.

The CEE Board [that’s us – A.C. :-)] has been working on bringing the CEE Dictionary, Taxonomy, and Syntax requirements together. We have drafted specification documents detailing the CEE Architecture as well as the initial Dictionary and Taxonomy specifications. These documents are the first of the CEE v0.5 (previous versions were internal) document series and have already been shared with some of you for your feedback. We are waiting for the final authorization before they are posted to the CEE website for your review.

This authorization is expected to be granted next week. A follow-up e-mail will be sent to this discussion list as well as the CEE Announce list notifying you that the documents were posted along with the URL where said documents may be obtained. It is important to note that these are only the first iterations of many. We need your help in improving CEE.

In addition to helping critique and improve the CEE documents, we are also requesting your help in building and improving the CEE Use Cases. Within the next week or two, you will also receive the beginnings of a list of CEE Use Cases for review.”
