Dear all,

  I have not received any comments on this and I would be grateful to 
receive some comments.

Other than that, I am desperately trying to get access to some open TBX 
documents that we can use for incremental refinement and make sure that 
we really cover most of the cases that appear in real world usage 
examples of TBX. We would also use them as examples by including them in 
our codebase so that people can right away see how the converter works.

So ideally, the TBX documents we are looking for would be available 
under a CC license so that they can be redistributed (by attribution of 
course). This would allow us to include them in the codebase.

So please, if anyone has access to open TBX documents please let me know.

Best regards,
