Dear Mr. Webber:

The W3C XML Schema Working Group has spent the last several months
working through the comments received from the public on the last-call
draft of the XML Schema specification.  We thank you for the comments
you made on our specification during our last-call comment period, and
want to make sure you know that all comments received during the
last-call comment period have been recorded in our last-call issues
list (http://www.w3.org/2000/05/12-xml-schema-lcissues).

Among other issues, you raised the point registered as issue LC-125,
which requests that the WG extend its last-call comment period to
allow later comments by the ebXML project.  While the WG had some
sympathy with the problems of those who wished to have more time to
comment on the draft, we did not feel ourselves in a position to
extend the comment period formally.  Public drafts of the spec have
been available since May, 1999, and the last-call comment period
lasted five weeks from the publication of the last-call draft.

We continue to welcome public comment on XML Schema, but we hope you
will understand that we are desirous of completing the publication of
XML Schema 1.0 as quickly as possible, and so did not feel able to
change our schedule to accommodate a single user community, despite
its obvious importance.

It would be helpful to us to know whether you are satisfied with the
decision taken by the WG on this issue, or wish your dissent from the
WG's decision to be recorded for consideration by the Director.

With best wishes,

- C. M. Sperberg-McQueen
