Subject: Re: Back to work and initial news

Thank you Juan for this response.  I have also been on the road and a bit quiet.

And please do feel free to discuss in the ETSI TC.  If indeed we do
specify XAdES directly in the odf specification it will be important
that we are scrupulously correct and following best practice.

I look forward to your further feedback.
