Subject: Re: [ebxml-dev] First release of OASIS UBL 2.0 IDD begins public review

Jon, I'm really delighted for you and the committee both. This is a 
big milestone for a very innovative, useful, tool-smart and 
process-smart resource.  It speaks well for the design, as well as 
the robust work contributed by our UBL localizing expert panels. 
Congratulations to all.  Regards Jamie
