Subject Re: [VOTE]: motion to transform Xerces into a top-level project as a member of the "federation" of XML projects
Date Mon, 21 Jun 2004 04:10:44 GMT





Hi Berin and Andy,

I've now updated the offending section (4.3b) to try and address some of
Andy's concerns.  There's some more feedback I want to solicit before I try
again to call for a vote on this stuff, so there's still lots of time for
folks to comment.  But here's hoping we can wrap this up in the next couple
of weeks or so.

Cheers,
Neil

Can't help myself, I'm going to stir the pot again....

Andy - did you update the wiki with your thoughts?

Cheers,
