Yes ... if someone would like a document posted to the work area, I am 
currently the bottleneck to do so.

That would be nice ... but how would we maintain the openness of our 
results as required by procedure?

Perhaps yes ... perhaps we collaborate out of the public eye and publish 
result on-line, but only for documents ... not for committee discussion, as 
discussion must remain open.

I'm anxious to get started on this, as I have little time before my next 
travel obligation.

I am a big fan of the early releases of collaborative tools such as Lotus 
Notes because I was in an environment where this was being used, but have 
not had the opportunity to use this tool for about 4 years and I have not 
needed to assess such web-based tools.

I look forward to specific suggestions of what we can use.  I'm sure other 
OASIS committees would be very interested to see how we solve this issue.
