Dear Mohamed,

I am writing on behalf of the WebCGM WG to acknowledge and thank you for 
your contribution of a draft Relax NG schema for WebCGM 2.1.  We will add 
this to the WG's agenda for future attention.  (Presently, we are focusing 
on the last steps to Recommendation for WebCGM 2.1).

FYI, we have had another contribution, in XML Schema language.  This also 
is on our future agenda, and has not yet received any focused WG attention.

Best Regards,
-Lofton Henderson.
