Just to clarify, the xml-dev and xml-dev-digest list of subscribers
as it was at Imperial College this  Monday (31/1/00)  is what
was transferred to  OASIS.   If you ARE on this
list, and do not wish to be, you have to send a request to  
majordomo@xml.org to be removed.

I am not yet aware of the policy being operated. There are several
alternatives, and hopefully this will be clarified on this forum within
a few hours (over to you Laura!)

(a) If the list is configured as  OPEN, anyone can submit a request
to majordomo@xml.org, which takes the form

unsubscribe xml-dev   

You have to submit the request from precisely
the same address as is subscribed (which caught a lot of people out
before!) An optional form is 

unsubscribe xml-dev  email@address  

which will be passed to a moderator
for their action (and does not take effect  until they perform this action)

(b)  AUTO, which takes the form

unsubscribe xml-dev  email@address.  

This option is unlikely, since you could unsubscribe  ANYONE from the
list without their approval

(c) CLOSED, which takes the mandatory form

unsubscribe xml-dev  or
unsubscribe xml-dev  email@address 

This requires  moderation, and may take a little while to action. 

A similar set of policies exist for subscription to the list. No doubt OASIS
will clarify this appropriately.
