from Rodolfo: The representation guides are not in the server at the right
places. Zipped versions are http://docs.oasis-open.org/xliff/v1.2/
from Rodolfo: The representation guides that we have still say "Public Review
Draft 02" because we don't have a better name for approved related documents
from Bryan: I did not include our FAQ, Whitepaper, or articles. I think we can
use these as leverage to help persuade members to vote, down the line, but I
do not consider them part of the core.

tools compatible with an implementer's data formats and workflow requirements.

I believe the latest timeline I had heard was that
you would be submitting XLIFF for OASIS Standard vote on/before December 15
(which would result in an OASIS ballot 16-31 Jan). This is a gentle reminder
that you have approximately 36 hours to meet that deadline.
