Subject: Re: [ubl] To discuss at UBL teleconference: Google docs for UBL Issues list

Hi Ken,

   Sorry - but Google docs isn't approved for TC work.

   We do now have a number of TCs using the OASIS-hosted JIRA issues  
tracker; if the UBL TC would like an area set up I'll be happy to do

Standards are like parachutes: they work best when they're open.
