Re: XML-dev futures discussion

Re:  XML-dev futures discussion
I'm trying not to participate in this discussion (I'd rather just let 
you guys figure out what you want to do), but I'll give one answer and 
make one comment. Yes, OASIS specifies Robert's Rules as the procedure 
within our TCs. But xml-dev is not an OASIS TC, so you're not obliged to 
follow those rules.

The more you all talk about chairs, executive council, consensus, web 
pages with additional functionality, who gets to vote on decisions, 
etc., I'm wondering at what point xml-dev will turn into an organization 
rather than just a discussion list. I think that you should ask 
yourselves what is to be gained from doing so and if that's really what 
you want.
