Hi Tom, 

I am in total agreement. I just sent a similar mail to Peter outlining
several such services which have additional functions that support 
collaborative work. I will forward this mail to you. 

The web is rapidly offering a variety of collaboration services and 
so it is just silly to stay stuck in the past with any organization that 
clearly does "not" get it and/or is unable or unwilling to respond to 
the needs of the larger community. Such organizations are unneeded baggage
in a world where we all must travel both fast and light. 


I am sure the members of the XML-DEV community know of a 
number of other sources of free or very low cost collaborative
systems that are available to step into the gap since OASIS 
appears to be incapable of doing the job. 

Maybe, since they cannot run a list, OASIS should focus on something
else that they are capable of. 

What, pray tell, is that?
