  Testing Conformance to the Proposed IEEE P1003/FIPS Standard
       Portable Operating System for Computer Environments

The Institute for Computer Sciences and Technology (ICST) at  the
National  Bureau  of Standards (NBS) will hold a two-day workshop
on Testing Conformance to Software Standards.  Four  major  topic
areas  will  be addressed: (1) graphics; (2) data management; (3)
office systems/document interchange; and (4) UNIX-derived operat-
ing system environments [UNIX is a trademark of AT&T].

The workshop will be held June 9-10, 1986 at  NBS,  Gaithersburg,

NBS/ICST is considering adopting the  full  use  version  of  the
IEEE/P1003  Standard  for  Portable Operating System for Computer
Environments as a Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS).
The  IEEE/P1003 standard is intended to provide a vendor indepen-
dent specification for UNIX-derived operating  systems.   It  was
approved  as  a trial use standard by IEEE in March, 1986.  It is
currently being evaluated via the IEEE trial use procedures.

In support of the planned Federal standard, ICST is exploring al-
ternatives for conformance testing.  This workshop is intended to
solicit vendor input on issues relating  to  conformance  testing
for the proposed Federal standard.

Issues to be addressed include:

        - test suite selection

        - test suite availability

        - test suite administration
                - who runs the tests
                - where the tests are run
                - when the tests are run
                - how results are certified

        - test suite maintenance

Martin or Tony Cincotta at (301) 921-3545.

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State 
Court of Utah for trade secrets misappropriation, tortious interference, 
unfair competition and breach of contract. The complaint alleges that IBM 
made concentrated efforts to improperly destroy the economic value of 
UNIX, particularly UNIX on Intel, to benefit IBM's Linux services 
business. See SCO v IBM.
