Subject: Re: [security-services] CD acknowledgment

Steve Anderson can supply a list of TC members on any arbitrary day 
-- he's a magician at this. :-)  I hadn't thought about implications 
for the new templates, but our policy had been to list only editors 
(people who directly touched the document) and contributors (people 
who supplied text or did significant reviews) on the title page. 
OASIS has a rule that only OASIS members can be listed on the title 
page, so anyone in these two camps who isn't a member (e.g. because 
they dropped halfway through the release cycle) can be listed in the 
Acknowledgments appendix.  Our policy has been to first list all TC 
members as a courtesy, and then others.

The Approved Errata doc is an example of this, where Jahan left the 
group but, of course, was a huge contributor to all the errata work.
