We are in the midst of a fairly intense discussion on DAML-S (and OWL-S) in
our lab.  This has raised a number of issues, problems and questions about
the languages and their use.  What is a good way to report these back to the
DAML-S consortium?  Two obvious extremes are to post one message here on
www-ws per issue, to allow a suitably threaded discussion, or to post a
paper discussing all of the problems  - which would be more compact but
harder to respond to.  I'd appreciate some suggestions.

I know that some of the problems that we are encountering have been
identified before - but I couldn't find an issue list or issue tracker for
DAML-S.  Does such a thing exist?

Finally, why are the consortium discussions private?  DAML-S is a public
specification; other standards bodies (e.g. W3C) make the standards
committees' deliberations open to the community to read (even if
participation is restricted).  I notice the same lack of visibility is true
for SWSI.  Does it suggest that consortium members have or are going to
assert intellectual property claims on the resulting specification?  If so,
are the terms of these claims public?

Regards,
Ian
