Subject: RE: [office] A proposed resolution

Correct.  But I've found that  not everyone is aware of that.  The fact that we received several NB comments last year via back channels and none (that I can recall) via the comment line is some evidence of this.   Hopefully one result of this will be that SC34 is made more aware of this facility.  

They could also be reminded of their ability to join OASIS as well as our policies for authorizing TC Liaisons

RE: [office] A proposed resolution

Hi everyone,
  Just chiming in to state what I hope is obvious: that *anyone* is able to communicate with a TC via the comments list - a question could be posed, the TC can then come up with an agreed-upon answer, and respond to the requestor.

Re: [office] A proposed resolution

That is always an option for the TC, whenever we have a chunk of work that is large enough and specialized enough to warrant a subcommittee to work on it.  

But I wouldn't read this resolution as being focused entirely on Ecma 376, though that is certainly a topic of interest,  For example you may recall last year, during the ISO ballot of ODF 1.0, that there were some awkward times when a NB had some questions about IRI's or BiDi support and could not figure out how to officially ask the TC questions.  So such questions were handled informally, via intermediaries, etc.  I'd like to do better in this area when we submit ODF 1.2, so that SC34 knows that we value their questions and their input.
