Why Russia approves OOXML without comments?
It seems like nobody knows why OOXML is approved by Russian Federation without any comments at all.
It is difficult to think that 6000 - pages document can be approved without comments at all.
I think, no technical experienced specialist in Russian government even read this document before making this decision.
It will be much more correct to just abstain in this case.
I decide to start investigation regarding this question.
I tryes to find out who approve this, and find out interesting facts:
Physically the approvement was made by Natalya Shevchenko (Наталья Шевченко), not a technical specialist but just a clerk in "Управление международных связей Федерального агентства по техническому регулированию и метрологии" - RF government structure, responcible for technical standarts and metrology.
By her words, the approvement was made by direct phone call from her chief, Evgeny Petrosyan (Евгений Робертович Петросян), deputy director of this structure.
No clear evidence of some working group or technical meeting is currently available.
E.P. Petrosyan is currently not available by his phone.
I will try to provide more informating regarding this matter then it will be available.
