TVA Maintenance Process
The maintenance of the TV-Anytime specification is taking place in the framework of the ETSI JTC BROADCAST committee. This follows the ETSI procedures, i.e. an open process with well defined perr reviews.
When does a maintenance phase start?
Implementers should inform ETSI or more directly Jean-Pierre Evain (firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com) or there intention to propose changes. Thisb is sufficient to start a public maintenance phase during which others contributors will be invited to submit additional updates.
How often does it open?
A maintenance phase takes approximately 9 months. A maintenance phase has taken place every year since the publication was first published by ETSI.
