Dear James and Colleages,

I am satisfied with the current CIF-JSON draft, but I am uncertain what the significance of COMCIFS’s approval would be.  Why are we considering this step?

Subject: CIF-JSON draft standard

The cif-developers mailing list has developed a standard for expressing CIF information in JSON form.  The resulting draft is available at<> .

The discussions around the development of this standard are available in the cif-developers archive:<>
If no substantial issues are raised here in the next 6 weeks, this standard will be considered to have been approved by COMCIFS.  Any substantial change to the standard will be routed through the cif-developers list (which anybody may join) before being returned here for final approval.  I propose that the approval period is reduced to 3 weeks for any subsequent drafts.
