Fair enough.  The OpenFormula specification (in .odt and .html formats),
and the automatically generated test suite, are now posted.
I have the copyright, and grant the OpenDocument TC the rights to use
this to develop a specification should they choose to, per the
OASIS OpenDocument TC IPR.
My goal in doing this is that I want there to be an open standard
for spreadsheets that is implementable by all.

Go to:
and look at the "Documents" section.

Repeat: There is NO commitment to use
this specification as a base document; that's something
the SC needs to discuss.  I hope it will be useful, of course,
but my goal is that there BE a spec... not that it be the
base document.  But I think it's useful, and hope others agree.
