working group that manages the joint specification that is  ISO/IEC 9945
(POSIX), IEEE Std 1003.1 and The Open Group Base Specifications Issue 6.

Draft 3 of the revision is now available. This is the second feature
complete draft of the specification, and the first recirculation draft
for IEEE balloting.  Concurrent IEEE and ISO balloting will take place

Key changes to note for this draft are that the document has been
