Subject: RE: [chairs] TC FAQ Template

Good point, Paul. 

Many Committees, such as the OASIS Security Services TC (http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/security/faq.php), include a statement
such as "If you have a question that is not answered here, or if you have questions or comments on any of the answers provided, feel
free to contact the editor <link to an email address of a TC member who has taken on the responsibility for maintaining the FAQ>."

If anyone has other ideas for encouraging reader input to FAQs, please let me know.

Subject: RE: [chairs] TC FAQ Template

Hi Carol,

Is there any way for FAQ readers to actually ASK a Question? (other than the mailing list?)  One great frustration with most FAQs is
that they don't answer the questions people really want to ask, because there is actually no clear way to A a Q.

> OASIS Committee Chairs:

> The OASIS Technical Advisory Board has compiled a list of generic

> Please take a moment to review your TC's FAQ page. Send new text or 
> edits to me, and we'll get them posted as soon as possible.
> Again, *all* OASIS Committees should provide information on their FAQ 
> pages. It is particularly crucial for TC's preparing to submit work
