Subject Re: HSSFSerializer - Extensions?
Date Fri, 27 Dec 2002 19:39:05 GMT
My thought would be to make the changes acceptable but not required and 
notify the gnumeric folks
( about the 
extensions.  They might be interested in
implementing them.  For the actually SCHEMA, create a different schema 
based on the original and mark
files which use the extensions as being compliant to that schema and not 
the one hosted at/by gnumeric...
