Subject: Re: [uiml] Groups - Open Issues in UIML3.1 v01.02 (Open Issues in UIML3.1v01.02.pdf) uploaded

Hello all,

Included below the dashed line is the annotated list of Open Issues broken out by who has volunteered to take responsibility for each issue.  Also attached is the template file for describing each issue.  Before you begin filling out the template please look at the Open Issue Document available at


It contains all of the Open Issues, some of which already have somewhat complete descriptions included.  It will provide a good starting point for the explanation and clarification you can provide.
