One particularly missing member is Microsoft. Microsoft was a core member for a long time but has now disappeared from the PCSC workgoup list.
MeSince 1 year I am an invited member of the PC/SC workgroup as a Free Software member and author of pcsc-lite and libccid. In practice I am (just) on one of the PC/SC workgroup mailing list. This list is very quiet since nearly everything is discussed and resolved during the 2 meetings each year.
YouIf you are not a member of the PC/SC workgroup you can't change the standard. But you may have good ideas for a new and missing feature.
For example the
FEATURE_GET_TLV_PROPERTIESservice is something that was added in March 2010 after a proposal I made with the help of Gemalto. So an evolution of the standard is possible.
If, as an PC/SC application author, you think something is missing in the PC/SC standard just tell me. I will try to propose it for inclusion.
