Subject: Re: [chairs] Re: [regrep] [Fwd: ObjectRef and RegistryObject need common base type]


All is not lost!  This has been discussed internally
by the TC chairs and a number of alternates offered.

We're not all control freeks! ; -)

There is a report being drafted that is reviewing the requirements first.

So - OK - this is all bureaucracy bullshit - but at least the wheels are

Now if I can just get them to do urgent things - like create the subteams
we need in Kavi for the BCM TC - (only been waiting two months now),
then we could really make progress.

Cheers, DW.
