Subject: RE: Results of Review of Product/Vendor Directory

I think everything below is done now. I added "None of the above" as a last
option for the "Interoperability" and "Other" filters. In the future, we may
want to look at a more intuitive filter interface (radio buttons or some
such), but I think we're good to go for now.

I agree the next step is to get some members to submit listings before I add
a link to the left nav. Let me know if I can help with that.

no selection for a particular criteria (e.g. adding a blank line, adding a
disclaimer that the reader/user can simply not make a selection, adding a
"None" selection or using some other method to allow no selection to be

Patrick asked if we should use "OSS=Open Source Software" to match GOTS and
COTS for that set of selection criteria, and our consensus was yes, so we
are asking for that change to be made.

Lastly, in the EMA TC meeting, we will ask that more vendors add their
listings so we can see more listings on the initial page to ensure that we
include that evaluation before we recommend approval to the TC.

We're almost "there." Thanks so much for working with us on this effort.
