Re: Open standards processes
On Wed 31 Dec 1997 I asked some basic questions about XSL on the DSSSL List. This was before the formation of the XSL list and after Jon Bosak saying that the DSSSL list was a suitable forum to discuss XSL. I sort of assumed that the XML-SIG style banter between the core experts and dabblers would be the order of the day. Paul Grosso replied to my enquiries with this comment >As a submission, it [XSL] is only a partial starting point, >and detailed discussion of it is of very questionable >utility (and I suspect most of the authors of the submission >will not find it well worth their time to reply). Some weeks later Arbortext announced an XSL product. My point? Any suggestion that the XSL etc. lists are run along the same "open" lines as XML-SIG is/was seems rather dubious to me.
