Subject: Re: Volunteers for Implementing PKI Action Plan

If you follow my directions below for joining
a subcommittee (or even investigating them),
you'll be disappointed. You won't see any
subcommittees at all. But they show up for me!

This is a known bug in the KAVI that causes TC
subgroups to only be visible on the TC members
page for the TC chair (for all subgroups) and
for existing subgroup members (for the subgroups
where they participate). So I see all the
Subcommittees, but you don't. Oops! Thanks to
Art Botterell for reporting this problem to me.

To work around this problem and access the
Subcommittee web pages, use the All Groups page:


Go to that page, scroll down to "OASIS Public Key
Infrastructure TC", and you should see all the
subcommittees under that. Then you can investigate
and join them. Let me know if you have any problems.
Art says it worked for him.

Sorry about that,
