Subject: Re: [chairs] Of un-patents and un-inventions


100% agreed.

Collectively I'm sure we can put something of value together here.
I've also solicited input from the OSI community today too.
They have had more experience with this already - so getting
some support from their perspective is also useful here.

My sense is that next up we have to actually create an
unpatent template and run through it a couple of samples.

The OASIS EML example I posted the link to I think is
one excellent such - I'm sure people can think of others.

Thanks, DW
