Re: [xml-dev] ADMIN: ZapThink report offer

Thanks for the note, but I've gotten contradictory feedback: one group says
to post all the details about an offering so that users can evaluate its
merits while the other says just post a short note. Judging from reactions
by others, it seems that there's no agreement. So, I've done the former. If
users just want me to post "This report is now available", then I will do
that next time.

Perhaps what would help would be a good example of what people would like to
see on this list.
