Preparing for the next OMG meeting

I’ll be off to Salt Lake City in a couple of weeks for the next OMG meeting.  One thing I’m going to try and do is get a Request for Proposals issued for a Metamodel Extension Facility that will improve and extend the current UML Profiles capability.  UML Profiles are quite popular, but the mechanism for defining them is really not very well defined, which leads to problems of interoperability and general misunderstandings about their scope.  We’ll also be meeting to work on UML 2.5, which is going too slowly for my liking, but is making forward progress. Aside from that I’ll be working on the finalization of SMOF and attending Architecture Board meetings.
