Subject: Re: [office] What was the story with missing default values for optional attributes again?

Hi Svante,

unless the scripts depend on functionality from the ODF Toolkit, I
would strongly suggest to host them at OASIS - their predominent
purpose being spec editing and maintenance. They are so deeply tied in
with this TC's work that splitting e.g. draft spec and xslt tool
hosting appear absurd to me.

The question yesterday was triggered e.g. by the chart:error-*
