Subject: ebxml-poc is up and running.
Well folks. The ebXML "proof of Concept" list seems to be up and running. Please forward to your respective teams and as you see fit. Thanks in advance. The list name is: ebxml-poc I issued a help request against the OASIS list server and based on the response it looks like a standard majordomo list server. If you are not familiar with majordomo please read the following (particularly section VIII) carefully, else just go ahead and send e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org and place the following in the *body* of the message: subscribe ebxml-poc [email@example.com] Where, firstname.lastname@example.org is optional. Once you have subscribed and I see a critical mass on the mail list I will formally solicit proposals for the August meeting. In any event, we should try and aim to have proposals tabled on or before before 6/30/2000. Regards, Nick p.s. I would like to keep this list a forum for engineering level discussions since there are other more appropriate forums for discussing marketing, and business issues. >Date: Sat, 24 Jun 2000 17:40:53 -0400 (EDT) >To: Nick.Kassem@eng.sun.com >From: Majordomo@lists.oasis-open.org >Subject: Majordomo results: help >Reply-To: Majordomo@lists.oasis-open.org > >-- > > >>>> help > >This help message is being sent to you from the Majordomo mailing list >management system at Majordomo@lists.oasis-open.org. > >This is version 1.94.5 of Majordomo. > >If you're familiar with mail servers, an advanced user's summary of >Majordomo's commands appears at the end of this message. > >Majordomo is an automated system which allows users to subscribe >and unsubscribe to mailing lists, and to retrieve files from list >archives. > >You can interact with the Majordomo software by sending it commands >in the body of mail messages addressed to "Majordomo@lists.oasis-open.org". >Please do not put your commands on the subject line; Majordomo does >not process commands in the subject line. > >You may put multiple Majordomo commands in the same mail message. >Put each command on a line by itself. > >If you use a "signature block" at the end of your mail, Majordomo may >mistakenly believe each line of your message is a command; you will >then receive spurious error messages.
