I just recieved new information (in Swedish) that Sweden will not vote Yes for DIS29500 Office Open XML, which I previously reported on. Sweden will instead abstain from voting in the ISO vote on September 2nd.

The SIS board had a meeting this afternoon and annulled the previous result due to that one of the commitee members had participated with more than one vote. I do not know which member, but I figure we all soon will know it…

This is a huge disappointment to me, and especially to those in the working group who has worked so hard for a Yes.

EDIT: spelling corrections - that happens when you are upset :-)

UPDATE: It ain’t over ‘til the fat lady sings - if SIS can put together a new meeting before the 2nd of September SIS may not abstain from voting.
