Subject: Re: [regrep] RE: Discovered numerous broken links in Regrep CSdocuments

Hi Robin,

Thank you for pointing out this issue. I have logged it under:


Note that above error is not caught when one searches for "Error: 
Reference source not found" in the Open Office source.
The best I have found is to search for it in the HTML converted text. We 
would welcome any suggestions for how to look for this class of error in 

Also, the previous unresolvable link issue is logged under:


I feel that both these issues are fairly minor and that they do not 
warrant going through another round of CSD, Public Review, CS before we 
move to COS.
Based on past performance, going through a cycle like above would likely 
mean ~4 month delay which is not justifiable considering the minor 
nature of the issues involved.

We want a high quality OASIS standard as much as you do. As a practical 
matter, if we keep taking 4 month schedule hits on these minor issue we 
will never get done. So instead, I feel we should track the issue and if 
the issue is trivial or minor we should keep moving forward.

BTW, There are many downstream activities that we are blocked on (e.g. 
getting Statements of Use, Candidate OASIS Standard Ballot Request etc.) 
while we are waiting for CS01 to be posted. It is my understanding that 
the CS01 bundle has been handed off to you for posting by Chet last 
week. I would be grateful if you can tell us when we could see CS01 posted.

Thank you for your valuable help and guidance.
