Ok. I've put everything in a single zip that I put on Kavi.

I think that's in

Right. I've dated it tomorrow.

Yes, that's http://docbook.org/tdg51/en/html/docbook.html

I don't think it's practical to publish that document as part of the
specification, it's simply too large. However, if you want to mirror it
on docs.oasis-open.org, that's probably doable.

I'm not sure I understand how the process expects to control how
members of the technical committee receive suggestions. If someone
writes one on the back of a chewing gum wrapper and hands it to a
member of the committee in the subway, I don't see how the committee
member can be forbidden from mentioning it at the next meeting.

However, I've updated that paragraph.

I believe they are here.


If you want to take another look, that would be great. I'll get the
minutes to record the appropriate things tomorrow.

                                        Be seeing you,

Norman Walsh <ndw@nwalsh.com> | So, are you working on finding that bug

                              | Yes.
