Thanks to Jeff for pointing out this list. He's has done an
excellent job responding to the questions, but it was me who
approached the foundation to join ECMA, and attended meetings. If
you have questions, please ask me directly.
Daniel : re:
After leaving Novell my intent was to rejoin both OASIS and
ECMA. If you can suggest an appropriate approach I'd be pleased
to take up the role again. My recent work on Gnumeric's ODF
filters has produced a laundry list of issues. My Gnumeric time
tends to be on the commuter train, with limited connectivity but
I'll speak to management about dialing in from the office.
Russel : re:
Your attitude and approach in this situation has muddied your
reputation and the FLOSS community. Had you wanted information
you could easily have contected me and we could have discussed
it. To go further and imply the I'm an MS shill of some sort
makes free software advocates in general look like conspiracy
nuts. My blog roll reflects things that are interesting. One
can disagree with Brian but he undeninably has useful content
about the MS perspective. Ignoring it does not seem useful .
As a spreadsheet developer it's also interesting to watch
competitors, is that a sin against good-speak too ?
We can disagree without insinuation and nonsense.
