Subject: FYI: OASIS site not ECN standards-compliant

Hi All,

I'm not quite sure that this is the right place to post this, but since
we've been discussing issues with the OASIS site I thought I should bring
this particular one to the attention of the committee. (It was pointed out
to me by a Debian developer (DD) who could not access the OASIS site.)

The DD forwarded to me the message he sent to the OASIS webmaster. The
relevant piece is:

  [...] your web site does not conform to the ECN standard (RFC 3168)[1].  
  As a result of this, I was not able to browse your site with a browser
  or access dtd's via http.

  I have verified through tcptraceroute -E, as well as by disabling ECN
  on my side, that this is the problem.

I glanced at the rfc and learned that ECN stands for "Explicit Congestion
Notification". At any rate, this is yet another serious problem with the
OASIS site.

I doubt the DocBook TC wants to say or do anything about this, but I 
thought that Norm (as chair) might find this info of some use in discussing
site problems with the chair's TC.
