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 https://comcifs.github.io/cif-json .


The discussions around the development of this standard are available in the cif-developers archive: http://www.iucr.org/iucr-top/lists/cif-developers/

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.
