The facilities worked very well and the 
hospitality was very warm and generous.  UBL 
members missed out on some tremendous food and a 
unique night-time safari event, including the UBL 
dancers (nothing more need be said on the dancing).

This has turned into a major rewrite in order to 
address all of the comments at the plenary 
meeting and some revelations in feedback received 
since that time.  I should have the revision ready today or tomorrow.

This was done during the meeting:


In those instructions I did not include how to 
point directly to an actual resource.  I don't 
recommend this since pointing to the meta data 
allows the archive reader to discover there may 
be subsequent versions of the document they are 
looking for.  Nevertheless, if you need to point 
directly to a resource,  note in my edits above 
how I hacked the URL for a resource by changing 
the portion of the URL from "apps/org/workgroup/ubl" to "committees":


the preceding password-protected resource becomes 
the following public resource:


... but I still would recommend we point to the 
meta data and not to the resource itself in case the resource has been revised:


Note also in my post during the meeting that I 
comment on the posting of very large resources unsuitable for storage in Kavi.

Thanks, Tim, for chairing the meeting in 
Singapore and recording the highlights.  For me 
this was one of the most useful UBL face-to-face meetings I've attended.
