Subject: Comments and IP


At a meeting of the ODF Metadata SC the issue came up about getting 
non-OASIS members to post use cases and other feedback to the TC.

The only mechanism now is the comment form.

One of the participants mentioned that the W3C handles that by sending 
the IP notice as part of the subscription confirmation.

That seems like an easier way to handle the IP notice and gets members 
of the public into the discussion loop.

The SC is looking for the easiest way possible, consistent with the 
required IP notice to get feedback. The reasoning being that is it 
easier to market a standard or technology that is what people are 
interested in using than something that we are interested in marketing.

I haven't done email adminstration in years but that seems like it would 
be fairly easy to implement and would cover all the necessary IP notices.

Hope everyone is having a great day!
