We've reached a significant milestone today with the publishing of the Open
Services CM 1.0 Spec. This was the result of community collaboration
between several individuals from  Accenture, Tasktop (Eclipse Mylyn), and
IBM who over a period of 5-6 months targeted a set of integration scenarios
and then drafted and refined interfaces to support these scenarios --
specifically, for Change Management resources and the REST services to
create, find, and link to them.

Importantly, the spec definition effort was done in parallel with work to
implement the specs in products. Rational Quality Manager integrates with
Rational Team Concert and Rational ClearQuest through these common
interfaces. Likewise, the open source Eclipse Mylyn project and Tasktop
commercial offerings are using the OSLC interfaces to integrate with RTC
and CQ. These are great proof points of the promise OSLC offers.

So, congratulations to the CM 1.0 core work group -- Steve Speicher, Mik
Kersten, Robert Elves, Randy Vogel, Gary Dang, Steve Abrams, Andre Weinand,
and Carolyn Pampino -- and to others who contributed.
