  • Standards are Hard to do!

    by Faisal Waris /

    Your message is awaiting moderation. Thank you for participating in the discussion.

    I have been involved in some standard setting processes and it is hard, frustrating work.

    Getting people to agree to something in principle is relatively easy but making them agree on the nitty gritty details of a spec is very hard. You can spend hours (days even) on single sentences.

    I have a lot of respect for people who do standards work on a regular basis.
