Subject: RE: [chairs] Enhancements to Kavi upload notifications and TC wikis

The HTML in the wiki is huge!  I've been frustrated by that for two years!!  Off to try out what is now possible in documenting schemas and more interactive content...
The email link being to public document - small but big change.
Thanks, DW

There has been a small, but significant improvement in the way upload notifications are written, which you may or may not have noticed. Kudos go to Neil Schelly, the OASIS Systems Administrator, for figuring out how to intercept the email that is, by default, sent to a Technical Committee list each time a document is uploaded. That notification has always used the “members only” URI – the version that requires your login/password before you are given access. That message is now intercepted and the URIs are replaced with the publicly accessible URI – meaning anyone reading the message in the email archives will be able to follow the link and not be denied access.


Yes, there are any number of possible approaches, all of which would have required a greater investment of time and/or resulted in breaking rules around other types of groups that are also hosted in the Kavi system. This approach addresses one of the major problems in that someone finds the upload notification message but is unable to actually access the asset, giving the impression that some of the TC’s work is hidden.


I would encourage all TC members to take note of that message and whenever referring to the particular document, make use of the publicly accessible URI.


Additionally, the ability to author wiki pages using HTML has recently been added. Use “#format html” on the first line and enter (or paste) raw HTML markup.


Again, thanks to Neil for helping us improve the services we offer to our committees. There are more to come.
