Similarly, very happy if OASIS wishes to host a CVS repository, which would reduce risk of of our current dependence on Sourceforge for our opensource development environment.

BTW, the development environment is linked to the OASIS site, and mirrored daily.

I think OASIS needs to balance openness with usability.  My TC
(ebxml-msg) uses a subversion repository on my personal server for
collaboration on our docbook-based specification.  There is a link in
Kavi to a web interface to this repository.

If OASIS wants to prohibit me from doing this, it had better provide me
with a subversion, CVS or perforce repository to work with.  Kavi is
not a good development tool.  I'm more than happy to use OASIS tools if
they meet my needs.
