Title: RE: [ebxml-iic] FreebXML


That is good news and I confirm our interest in a "liaison"
to freebXML, and you seem to be in a good position for this...

To do things in the proper way, we'll need to hear first if there is
anyone else from IIC interested in being a liaison to freebXML.
(in which case we would have to vote.)

Question: I may not have searched enough on www.freebxml.org, but
what would be the licensing policy of freebXML? (similar to Apache?)
I think that is important for would-be contributors and their legal dept.
I certainly do hope we'll see some reference implementation for the
test framework with some open source status.

(Also hope your "real" job will leave you enough time for IIC activities,
which are not just "virtual" :)

Sorry for my spotty attendance to this TC lately, my "real" job has
been getting in the way of devoting as much time as I'd like to this

Monica asked me to fill in the TC on FreebXML and act as liaison to
that group, which I can do.  Basically, FreebXML wants to be a center
of attention for open source ebXML implementations, much like the
Apache Software Foundation's "Jakarta" project aims to be the center of
Java open-source infrastructure components.  The steering committee, 
of which I am a member, is made up of a group of ebXML vendors, and key
project contributors.  The ebXML vendors see value in the site because
it broadens the ebXML audience, thus increasing the ebXML market size,
just as xml.apache.org has for Java and Web Services.

There has been discussion among the FreebXML SC on linking to IIC
specifications, or TestDriver implementations.  I would hope that
anyone implementing the TestDriver would consider making it a FreebXML
project, and I would be happy to serve as a conduit for that discussion.

I you have any specific questions about FreebXML, please do not
hesitate to ask them.
