Date Wed, 29 Jan 2003 21:29:46 GMT
Nicola,

WS PMC has not voted on it yet. i privately pinged a few folks who seemed receptive. I will
let
scott and his team answer the rest of the queries/concerns. As soon as we setup our mailing
lists
and archives etc (this weekend), i can initiate a vote.

Thanks,
dims
