Subject: Re: [opendocument-users] Hello, new to the list

Ive been doing a lot of posting for the last month and a half except that Ive been doing it on the wrong list which was the development guys list.
So I will be posting here now. By the way ODFToolkit is a great product.

Hey John,

Thanks for coming to the opendocument-users list.

This list is pretty quiet, as you can see from the archive.

But this may still be a pretty good place.

There is also another (mainly quiet) OpenDocumentXML.org forum and a
still-young OASIS ODF Interoperability and Conformance (OIC) TC that may
interest you.  You can find out more about both at
<http://wiki.oasis-open.org/oic/OpenDocumentXML.org>.  There is also an
OpenDocument Format Adoption TC
<http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/odf-adoption>.  Both OIC and
odf-adoption have comment lists that you can subscribe to and contribute

I'm not sure any of these TCs is perfectly aligned with your particular
quest, in that we do not assess implementations.  On the other hand, the OIC
is particularly interested in learning the answers to the same questions
(without profiling individual applications) in determining what the
interoperability sweet spots are and where in the ODF features there is poor
support or problematic use in interoperable situations.  The idea is to
arrive at guidelines as well as test descriptions for assessing conformance
and for achieving interoperability. 

I encourage you to look around among the multiple efforts and see which one
aligns best with your purposes.

I recall when the RFPC was announced.  Thank you for providing the results
of the workgroup.  Has an Electronic Records Committee been established?


- Dennis

Subject: [opendocument-users] Hello, new to the list

I just wanted to introduce myself (and use this as a test message).  I have
a number of implementation questions from the customer/user perspective
which I hope to be posting here soon.  This list appears somewhat quiet
right now so I hope I have chosen the right place.

I was part of the workgroup which helped produce this report (and is still
meeting):  "A Strategy for Openness:  Enhancing E-Records Access in New York
State."  See:  http://www.oft.state.ny.us/Policy/ESRA/erecords-study.htm

Any comments or questions I post here will be geared towards me individually
better understanding how app-developers' ODF implementation choices affect
users.  I am particularly going to be interested in not only the
app-development choices being made, but grokking which alternative choices
were and are possible.
