Subject: RE: [office] Proposals via office-comment

Got it.

The confirmation of e-mail address for subscription to the office-comment
list constitutes a click-through acceptance of the feedback license.  I dug
up my 2008-05-17 subscription confirmation message and read the tie-back to
the ODF TC RF on Limited Terms IPR policy.

Good enough.

Hi Dennis,

  In order to subscribe (and therefore post) to the comment list, the
submitter must first agree to the feedback license, which gives the TC
permission to use whatever is submitted. No additional hoops are necessary.
There is no such thing as a 'non-obligated' contributor.

	It occurs to me that arrival of proposals via the office-comment
list, as opposed to specific comments on ODF specifications, is straining
the bounds of the commenter agreement.  This is different than wandering off
into discussion.  Rather, I have concerns on substantial proposals that are
essentially new work items or offering of additional technologies.  These
appear to be contributions of a rather different, substantial nature from
non-obligated contributors.
	This occured to me with regard to the "Proposal to improve change
tracking in ODF" recorded as OFFICE-3312,
<http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-3312>.  It may apply to
the one received today as well.
	I have not examined the proposal materials for OFFICE-3312, and I
don't think I'll be looking at this one on font features either.  We might
even need some sort of clean-room procedure for vetting proposals of this
kind to ascertain whether a contributor agreement is required in lieu of TC
Member obligation (and confirming that the contributor has the authority to
provide such an agreement).

	PS: I am not aware of any such case, but are we clear that any
proposals from former members that have been incorporated in ODF 1.2 are
covered by the obligations of such members before their departure from the
	PPS: When a proposal is to adopt provisions of a different standard,
the situation is a little different, assuming that the IPR policy for such a
third-party specification is compatible with that established for OASIS
OpenDocument specifications.

	Subject: [office-comment] Proposal for adding Font Feature support
to ODF
	Dear all,
	Please consider the attached proposal for adding support for Font
Features to the ODF format. Font Features
	are a way to control rendering of a specific font-family beyond that
allowed by just font-weight and font-style and we believe that they would be
a useful addition to the ODF standard.
	Best regards,
	Keith Stribley
