Hi John,

>From a technical view-point I guess it would be great to be able to
add updates as we wish. But I think to keep the page useful it would
be better if there was an 'editor'. I know you are incredibly busy, so
I hate suggesting additions to your workload, but I think the current
method of sending announcements to you, which you then put up, works
well.

Otherwise, I think that (a) the page will quickly degenerate and (b)
non-members don't have a way of putting up their announcements.
(Although you could say that with the new open, all-embracing W3C,
anyone who is serious about implementing an XForms processor should
really be a member or invited expert.)

Of course, someone else could be the 'editor', but my main point is
that I think there should be one.

(But I do agree with having only one page.)

Regards,

Mark
