Subject: RE: [uoml] Liaison role and duties

Hello Alex,

I didn't know about the capability of Red Office. It's very interesting.
Why do we need an ODF processing software that is not an office suite?

The ODF Adoption TC has shown enough ODF-ready office suites. What we need
to do know is to sparkle the interest of the developer community around
ODF as a format. See for instance the ODF Toolkit project that
OpenOffice.org has started. It's all about manipulating ODF documents
without an office suite but focusing only on the document operation.

Where it becomes interesting though is that UOML is specifically designed
in order to perform all kinds of operations on documents, including ODF
and UOF documents. So I think it would be a good cooperation that is
serving both the interests of the ODF and UOML TCs.

Happy New Year to all of you!
