Subject: RE: ebXML list of participants

I would like to see this list maintained, if only for the sake of PR.

As our ebXML marketing efforts escalate in the next six months, I expect
editors and analysts to access the participants list frequently. The
prestige, expertise, diversity and sheer numbers of ebXML supporters
send a strong message to the press. The fact that you can't tell who's
an active participant and who's a lurker works to our advantage.

Subject: ebXML list of participants

OASIS IT staff has been maintaining the ebXML list of participants
(http://www.ebxml.org/participants/participants.htm) by hand, and adding
names every few weeks. This isn't really a list of people who
but rather a list of people who subscribe to any the ebXML lists,
they particpate or not. (Given the numbers, it's actually a list of
there's ~2000 people on the list, but probably only a couple hundred of
those really participate.)

My question is whether we should make the effort to continue to keep
list current. Over 900 people have subscribed to the mail lists in the
five weeks! Do we want those 900 people added (by hand) to the
list? I think anyone who is truly participating has been doing so for
some time, so the people subscribing now are just lurking.

So, we can either 1) continue to manually add new people to the list as
subscribe, 2) stop adding people and just leave it where it's at today,
3) actually come up with a list of participants (defined as what?) and
publish that list on the web page.

Feedback, please.
