Subject: ebXML Core Elements Project Team

Hi All!

I realized by last Tuesday that it was taking too long to hear an
initial message from our listserv, so I contacted Laura Walker.  Sure
enough, I was some how omitted from the list!  I hope I didn't miss any

Attached is our final document from the meeting [in plain text form,
which is required by OASIS].  I have had anopportunity for a few one on
one discussions with various work group members, and am very
enthusiastic about some of the great ideas I am hearing.  I am very
anxious to get started, and will initiate a discussion of interim work
products/activities in the next couple of days.

Until then, I have been in contact with Bob Sutor and Laura Walker on
the topics of our web page and obtaining a contact list for members.  It
is my preference to maintain interim work products on our web page,
rather that trying to email them all over.  This makes it easy for new
members to come up to speed with the progress of the group.  I have been
promised that they expect to wrap things up by the end of the week.
