Subject: Re: [chairs] need your comments on DocMgmt system requirements

Excellent comments, everyone. Keep 'em coming.

I see a consensus that we want a sandbox as a phase prior to checkin and 
version control, and a suggestion to use wiki for the sandbox. We will 
need to have access control too, to restrict this to the TC members.

I see a lot of pros-n-cons for using MSWord together with CVS in the 
second phase, especially as it relates to change control. We're not 
committed to CVS yet; that's just a popular suggestion. How would you 
feel about a requirement to do all of your documents in HTML or XML? 
i.e. no proprietary or binary formats. (Now there's a big can of worms 
to open :-) I'm not making any threats; just wondering if that might be 
a good way to go. Perhaps this would require OASIS providing tools for 
the TCs to use; we'd have to ask some vendors for contributions.

If we did use some text-based format (as above), would CVS provide us 
with change logs?
