It looks like someone from Microsoft has shown up to discuss our  
issues with the OSP, patent grants, etc. Should we respond with a  
clear list as distilled from this very long and often emotional  
discussion, or should we wait until they come back with answers.

I think that it would help us to have a list of statements. Its clear  
to me that you might be the best person to make that list.

I propose a vote of consensus - Do we (A) present a list of questions  
as a reply to Sam Ramji's posting "ApachePOI Email", or (B) wait for  
Microsoft's answers as Sam Ramji promises?

If (A) becomes our choice, then I think we should reach a consensus  
about the list, one that is rather inclusive. I certainly think we  
should make sure to ask all of Andy's questions. I also am not sure  
that his are all the questions that need to be asked.

I am (A) +1. and (B) 0.
