OASIS members and other interested parties,

OASIS and the Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration (OSLC) Open ProjectOpen Services for Lifecycle Collaboration (OSLC) Open Project [1] are pleased to announce that its first approved Project Specifications are available for public review and comment [2].

The OSLC (Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration) initiative applies Linked Data principles, such as those defined in the W3C Linked Data Platform (LDP), to create a cohesive set of specifications that can enable products, services, and other distributed network resources to interoperate successfully.

Requirements Management V2.1 PS01 builds on OSLC's Core Specification to define the resources, properties and operations to be supported by an OSLC Requirements Definition and Management server. The PS received 3 Statements of Use from SodiusWillert, IBM, and KTH Royal Institute of Technology [3].

Change Management v3.0 defines a RESTful web services interface for managing product change requests, activities, tasks and relationships as well as related resources such as requirements, test cases, or architectural resources. The PS received 3 Statements of Use from KTH Royal Institute of Technology, SodiusWillert, and IBM [4]
