Subject: RE: [election-services] Fw: Top 10 Reasons for using EML

Wow - did we produce this?  I'm impressed! (We must have a good editor!).
Attached - couple of nits - font got mangled on one bullet in items 9 - and I did wordsmith on one bullet in items 1.
Once we have this finalized - agree good to have OASIS release a news item - and post links accordingly.
From there I believe we will all find recurring opportunities to point people to this where an opportunity arises either virtually or face-2-face in events, on topic lists and of course at OASIS official events as well.
Thanks, DW

Hopefully the dust has settled now after the USA elections and we can resume work on our Top 10 paper.  Attached is the latest draft and this reflects all the comments I've received to date. 
You'll see from my previous e-mail below I posed a number of questions about how we should take this forward.  In my opinion we should take the following course of action:
- I think we should just concentrate on a single global Top 10 list.  Producing localised versions would almost certainly introduce problems keeping all versions in line and retaining consistency of messages.
- Having compared the draft List with our White Paper I think we should issue the Top 10 list as a stand-alone paper but reference the White Paper for further details.  There is not a direct one-for-one correlation between the Top 10 list and the White Paper but all points in the List are indirectly covered in the White Paper.  To make direct cross-references would require a significant re-write of the White Paper and I don't feel the effort required is necessary or warranted.
So can we now agree the content of the draft attached and also my approach above please?  Once I have that agreement I'll talk to Carol Geyer about presentation and distribution of the List.  Any thoughts on those aspects would be appreciated.

Thanks for all the contributions to date.  I suggest we now pause work on this for a couple of weeks to allow some of our colleagues to complete their commitments on the USA election and catch-up on these discussions.  In the meantime I'll consolidate the comments I've had so far and look at linking the Top 10 list to our EML White Paper.
When we resume discussions after the USA election  I'd like opinions please on the following:
- should we produce a single global Top 10 list, or go for a number of  localised versions that concentrate more on local concerns?
- do we issue this as a separate stand-alone document, or do we link it directly to our White Paper, or do we integrate it as the front page of the White Paper?
More in a couple of weeks.
