The DMTF announce the incubator for Cloud Computing. See the complete information here. The charter can be found here. Sun is one

The Cloud incubator is expected to complete within 1 year from approval of the charter by the board.

OCCI has a similar approach and tries to deliver in the same time frame. Hope to see some work overlap and collaboration!
