Subject: Re: ebXML list of participants


It would seem to me that there's markerting spin that can be
derived from the fact that there are over 2000 subscribers to the various
project team lists. It my not be necessary to track exactly who they
are to allow some marketing whiz to make use of this information
to emphasize the momentum that is being gained daily.
