Subject: Re: [office] How about an interoperability Subcommittee?
Dear Alex, perhaps should we form an Interoperability SC within the UOML TC and then coordinate back here? I think that there obviously needs to be some technical, specification work to be done at the strict level of interoperability, so forming the SC here might be a good choice. Of course the Adoption TC needs to be involved as well. Regards, Charles-H. Schulz. ALex Wang a écrit : > Yes, this proposed TC is aimed to interop at semantic level.
