ebxml-regrep message

Subject: Re: Interface Primitives Draft V021.

I have taken the liberty to free my colleagues in TRP from this on going soap
opera that is an embarrassment for me as
a member of RegRep and an embarrassment for me as a member of ebXML and removed
ebxml transport from
the replyto of this message.

-Ideas should be put on the table in their proper working group and positioned
as a proposal.
-They should not be (mis)represented in other working groups as works of the
proper working group.
-They should not contain misleading statements that position ones company's
product or specs as ebXML's products and specs.
-They should not contain technologies/protocols used by ones company as ebXML's
supported and accepted technologies/protocols
-They should not be done as parallel universes to officially sanctioned works
in the proper working group

RR has only 2 Sun reps. So far only one has been putting ideas on the table.
The other has been giving valuable feedback like all other team members. I have
to belong to some company and it happens to be Sun. The ideas I have been
putting on the table would have been identical to what they are currently had I
been working for another company. Two weeks ago we had no specs or propsals on
the table. Where were you then?
