TC Discussion
Michael will contact David Mason again, to start coordinating for ISO 

Using the OASIS model would make it impossible for 
free-software/opensource implementations to become conformant, since 
fees would have to be paid for conformance verification.
The TC thinks, that conformance should be handled in the following way:
- The TC defines the conformance rules
- A SubCommittee is to be created, which refines those rules and enables 
3rd parties to test compliance. This SC should also be chartered to 
drive general adoption of OpenDocument and conforming applications.
- community driven projects (e.g. KOffice, OpenOffice.org) should report 
conformance problems with 3rd parties to the TC, and the TC will try to 
resolve those conformance problems with those parties.
- All TC members should try to recruit members for such a new SC

New action items
All: recruit members for conformance/marketing TC (until 2005-04-25)
