I know what it is like to maintain a listserve so my offer had a caveat -- volunteers to help manage the listserve. > B.3 Move xml-dev to the W3C No experience - good or bad! > B.4 Move xml-dev to DISA > I was envolved slightly with the move of the XML/EDI group to DISA and I found them very good to work with. However, I too was silently deleted from the listserve -- I just thought the list was quiet. This is a software problem and as soon as it was brought to their attention they corrected the problem. PERSONAL OBSERVATION: It seems to me that the list ran much smoothly when Peter and Henry were moderating the list. I believe that having a point person to interact with whichever system the list moves too and the governing organization would be worthwhile. It is a big commitment for a member or a group of of members to do this. My thinking is the main reason that things have gone awry with OASIS is there is not a direct connection between the list membership and OASIS. Communications is essential. This will be true wherever the list resides.
