Subject: Results of wsrm-comment test

It seems most, if not all, members of the TC are subscribed to the 
wsrm-comment list at the moment.  A number of respondents specifically 
mentioned they had *not* explicitly subscribed to the second list.  I do 
not believe I received any responses from people not on the main TC list 
though the old OASIS subscription page [1] previously allowed anyone to 
subscribe to the comments list.  (It now appears that subscription 
manager handles only the XML.org mailing lists.)

The original questions about the wsrm-comment list came up in the 
context of soliciting outside input on our recently approved 
Requirements and Specification working drafts.  Since then, I have 
reviewed the updated OASIS process [2] in more detail and noticed the 
specific prohibitions against technical discussion on such lists as well 
as the possibility of Karl Best sending out notifications of new TC 
working drafts (not committee drafts, which are later documents) to all 
OASIS members.  I do not think our wsrm-comment list is an appropriate 
place for announcements though it remains the best way for the general 
public to submit comments on our documents.  We will all see such 
comments and can immediately begin discussing them on our main list.

I would suggest we (primarily the editing team but with explicit group 
(a) complete the document renaming started near the end of our 
face-to-face meeting as a result of one of the group resolutions,
(b) confirm Iwasa and Szabolcs have uploaded document versions that 
reflect all decisions made last week,
(c) copy the most recent version of these documents to the 
"Specifications" folder to increase their visibility (less clutter...), and
(d) request that Karl send out a notification to the OASIS members that 
these documents or the Requirements document alone (I forget the details 
of our decisions here) are available and solicit comments.
