Apache Wiki: WebServicesSpecifications

Apache wiki has a page for Web services specifications that includes an RSS feed.

Kewl. I like the fact that it calls them "specifications" and not "standards". Unfortunately, come of the cited specifications are no longer in vogue like WS-Attachments. WS-Transactions has been superceded by the combination of WS-Atomic Transactions and WS-Business Activity. WS-Inspection isn't receiving much attention these days. Neither is WS-Routing for that matter.

There also appear to be two or three glaring omissions; notably SOAP (1.1 and 1.2), WSDL (1.1 and 2.0), UDDI (2.0 and 3.0), and SAML to name a few off the top of my head.
