Mike Banahan (email@example.com) writes to UKUUG members:
In response to (amongst other things) this post, Francis Cave, chair of the BSI committee which looks after the Office Open XML proposal amongst other tasks, has had to handle a substantial volume of email messages about the ISO/IEC Fast Track proposal.
He has asked me to ask UKUUG members that since I have been accepted as a member of that committee on behalf of UKUUG, communication from UKUUG members is most appropriately sent to me for forwarding on behalf of UKUUG.
The BSI committee is a volunteer effort and nobody obtains fame or fortune for the work that they do on it. It will assist Francis in his work as Chairman if he doesn’t have to collate large volumes of email on this or any other topic!
I appreciate that this is a matter on which UKUUG members feel strongly and am happy to represent their views to the BSI on behalf of UKUUG.
Francis has also said that additional volunteers to the committee will be welcome.
