Subject: Re: [regrep] New OASIS TC FAQ Pages
Yes, that was actually very intentional on my part - but we may decide to change it. Here's my thinking (see comment marked with <JMC> following each point - it actually applies only to points 4 through 6): (4) Ensures availability and reuse of authoritative XML-A controlled registration and validation of XML artifacts from authoritative sources promotes interoperability between trading partners, and facilitates greater reuse <JMC> This is very much from a federal standpoint (my concentration), hence the use of the term "authoritative". We may/may not want to retain this idea for our FAQ. Having said that, one develops authoritative XML artifacts, rather than authoritative non-XML artifacts, in data exchanges between and within federal agencies. </JMC> (5) Enables collaborative development-Users can create XML artifacts and submit them to an XML registry for use and potential enhancement by authorized parties. The enhanced versions can then be made available for access by other authorized parties. <JMC> Also addresses the creation of XML artifacts by users, rather than things such as documentation, because the primary focus of the registry is XML artifacts. While it is true that an XML registry could be used for collaborative development of non-XML artifacts such as documentation, that is more the function of a document management system. We may want to decide if we want to promote XML registry for document management purposes, and tweak this text accordingly. </JMC> Thanks, Joe Monica Martin wrote: > > Breininger, Kathryn R wrote: > > >Thanks Joe.

Yes, we do indeed have a link on our public page as a place holder. Joe, if you modify the answer to the one question as Monica suggested, I will send those two questions to Carol. We can have more added as we develop them.
