I agree this is a good time to look at how we want VOEvent to evolve in
As a step towards bringing the VOEvent standard up to date with the IVOA
document standards I asked Baptiste Cecconi to convert the current Word
.doc document into a Latex .tex version compatible with the IVOATEX
Document Preparation System.
The aim of this step was a simple format conversion from Word .doc to
Latex .tex with no changes to the document content.
The initial results of the conversion are now available in the IVOA svn
I'd like to invite everyone to take a look at the attached PDF and check
for any changes to the content caused by side effects of the format
If the resulting PDF version passes review, then some question for the
1) Is the tex/PDF version close enough to the original to become the
published version of the standard ?
2) Do we keep the version number the same, VOEvent-2.0, or do we
increment a minor version number, VOEvent-2.1 ?
3) Are we happy to add Baptiste Cecconi to the list of editors in
recognition of this contribution ?
I look forward to working with you to develop the next generation of
