Subject: RE: [ebxml-jc] ebXML XML.org Homework for JC

I tried to update the Knowledge Base, but ran into a problem. Following Carol's directions in the email of Jan 5 I got to step 3 select "book page" and could not find it. I thought I would spend time this weekend trying to figure it out. I ran out of time yesterday.

ebXML JC members,
Please update your TC's page in the Knowledge Base ASAP (I am working on
it this morning :-) ) Also, we have an opportunity to add our *brief*
bios to the editorial board page. No one has updated this page yet - is
this something we would like to do?

If we are going to meet our goal of announcing the ebXML XML.org site
this month, we need to get cracking.

First, I created a page in the Knowledge base for each TC (see links at
http://ebxml.xml.org/knowledge-base). Each TC chair (or their designate)
needs to add content to their group's page BEFORE COB THURSDAY, 11 JAN.
At a minimum, this content should be a brief overview that defines the
TC's work in basic terms. Be sure to include links to the specifications
and to the TC's public homepage on the OASIS site.

You (as Editorial Board members) can edit and add Knowledge base pages
at any time, but you should try to avoid including information that will
become outdated too quickly (unless you *know* you're going to stay on
top of it).
Registered users of the site will be able to append comments to your
Knowledge base pages, but they won't be able to edit the main text.

In addition to the main overview page for each TC, sub-pages may be
created to provide information at a more detailed level. To create a
sub-page (child-page) in the Knowledge base:
1. log in
2. select "create content" from the right column of links 3. select
"book page"
4. specify a title for the page; a path alias is optional (but
5. activate the pull-down menu for "Parent" and select your TC page from
under the "Knowledge base" listing.
6. add your text in the "Body" field
7. if you're creating multiple sub-pages, activate the "Weight"
pull-down menu to specify the order in which you want them to appear in
the index 8. preview your work 9. submit

Second, if your employer offers a product or service related to ebXML,
please create a listing in http://ebxml.xml.org/products or
http://ebxml.xml.org/services. Each listing can only be edited by its
author and by the OASIS admin staff. Others may append comments (e.g. a
customer may comment on how great your product is), but they can't alter
the listing itself (this protects against competitors editing each
other's listings.)

Next, please consider adding a testimonial to

Finally, if you want to be identified as a member of the Editorial
Board, please add your name and *brief* bio to
(See http://dita.xml.org/editorial-board for an example.)

On Friday, 12 Jan, I'll send a message to members of all the OASIS ebXML
TCs and ask them to add their own products, services, news,
testimonials, recommended resources, etc. prior to our public launch. It
is very important that the Knowledge base pages be filled before then
(so members easily understand what we're trying to do).

In the meantime, I'll start drafting a press release to announce the
site. If your company is interested in becoming a sponsor, please let me
know; site sponsors will be featured and quoted in the press release.
