Hi Scott,

  A subcommittee is not an official body in the sense that it doesn't have
attendance requirements and voting rights. Only the main TC has that. So once a
subcommittee finishes its drafting work, it needs to send it to the main TC and
arrange a spot on the agenda to discuss and get approved as a Committee Draft.
From that point it's in the TC's hands (Committee Spec and OS submission),
unless comments are received and it goes back down to the subcommittee.

The comment list itself is tied to the TC since the IPR is controlled by that
group and contributions are determined by TC membership, not SC membership (so
even if someone isn't in the subcommittee, the fact that they are a member of
the DocBook TC means that they incur IPR obligations).

Any files uploaded to the subcommittee group should be (must be) publicly
16/publishers.rnc would be

But I don't see an actual spec - we need a document, not just a schema.

Does that help?
