Subject: Re: OASIS TC web pages

Hi Karl,

I'd like to have the reg/rep pages updated.  I don't recall the final 
decision regarding the process of updating (i.e., I update the page myself 
or do I send you files...)  I'm more than happy to send you (or Jeff?) files.

Please let me know.  I have documents and minutes ready to go.
