Love to Mary. Pity your IT infrastructure and rules won't let us work
a wiki on your servers.

If we were being paid you'd have some standing with that statement Mary.
Anything we author and store  is ours  to do with as we please?
Legally, that is.

Again I'd question your rights to control voluntary work by individuals
not working for Oasis when such work output (documents) are
not hosted by Oasis?

It's certainly my intention to contribute my efforts towards this TC
(and derivative TC's), but I don't accept your authority to tell me
what to do with it.

I would tend to agree with Dave on this point, particularly as I am not currently working for an OASIS member org and in the absence of an 'invited expert' system, if I understand well, would have to pay you in order to volunteer my expertise.

In the interim however we can and will do everything necessary to ensure our efforts are 'consumable' by the TC, initially and on an ongoing basis.
