Subject: RE: FWD: re: POC liaison report
David, You're way off the mark on your statement about the title of the POC Proposal. I don't know what document you're looking at, but I have in front of me ebXML POC Proposal v1.0 and nowhere on the cover page is RosettaNet mentioned, One only gets to that where the scenario is being defined and described. Cool your jets, guy! Have some trust in the POC team and the StC on this.

A participants list seems more |than adequate as in the past practice with all other ebXML documents. | |(i.e. A configuration diagram should contain names such as 'delivery |server', |'ebXML enabled server', 'trading partner A', and so forth). | |A configuration diagram should also contain how it fits into |the overall |ebXML architecture as in the latest release of the ebXML Architecture |document, and refer back to that document where applicable. | |Some people may infer from this that I am anti-RosettaNet.
