Maybe for the same reason others have done so to ensure the ebXML chair is aware of the issue :-) Having said that, and noticing that this topic is not going away, here is the response I have send earlier to the various parties involved. Maybe I made a mistake by not sending it to the team as well. So here it is and I hope with Bob Sutor's comments and mine we can move on and concentrate on the task at hand. ==================BEGIN FORWARDED MESSAGE================== >From: "Klaus-Dieter Naujok" <firstname.lastname@example.org> >To: "Miller, Robert (GXS)" <Robert.Miller@gxs.ge.com> >Cc: "Scott Nieman" <Scott.Nieman@norstanconsulting.com>, > "David RR Webber" <Gnosis_@compuserve.com>, > "Farrukh Najmi" <Farrukh.Najmi@east.sun.com>, > "Scott Hinkelman/Austin/IBM" <email@example.com> >Date: Wed, 20 Sep 2000 07:31:24 -0700 >Subject: RE: Interface Primitives Draft V021. > On Wed, 20 Sep 2000 09:59:48 -0400, Miller, Robert (GXS) wrote: >To ignore or atempt to squash inputs from participants could have a >detrimental effect on the quality of the work, and of support for the >finished product. > >I trust you will gently remind the 'combatants' that this is a cooperative >standardization effort, not a race to the finish line.

Gentleman, I hope this term is applicable to all of us. Bob is summing up the way things should be. I am reviewing with the Executive tomorrow the various points and issues raised but would prefer that you sort this out yourselves. My guiding light as chair of many groups has always been: Any input is welcome as long as it contains to the subject at hand and if it is a counter proposal contains the rational and value add for the proposed change. This will allow the team to review the proposal and determine if it will become part of their work effort. Until such time, a proposal is nothing more than a personal or national contribution and as such can not be referred to as the groups or standard bodies work, in other words being called "official". If the group does not accept the contribution, it must identify on technical grounds the reason. Nothing stops the group to accept parts or modify parts for inclusion. This process is not rocket science and should be easy to follow. If you need more advice from me, feel free to ask. I don't plan to raise this issue at today's Steering Committee conference call.
