Transfer of the XML-DEV List to OASIS
Date: Wed, 15 Dec 1999 22:12:50 +0000 From: "Rzepa, Henry" <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: email@example.com Subject: LISTADMIN: IMPORTANT. Transfer of this [XML-DEV] list to OASIS.
During the last three years, this list has had a home at Imperial College, and more than 18,000 postings have been made, the cummulative effect of which we feel has made a major impact on the development of the Internet and of Open Standards.
The time has come to move the list to an organisation which can offer extensive additional resources to improve the features available to subscribers.
We are delighted to be able to announce that OASIS have most generously offered to host the list from January 1st, 2000. A press release announcing this has been made available on the OASIS Web site:
Further announcements at the above site, and to this list will be made shortly to indicate the arrangements for transfer of the list.
Here at Imperial College, we will be closing down the list re-distribution on Tuesday 21 December, since no administrators will be available after that date because of the holiday shutdowns. Please continue to post up to that date, and please watch for further announcements.
The list archive will continue to be available for some time from http://www.lists.ic.ac.uk/hypermail/xml-dev/ for postings made up to the 21 December 1999, with the possibility of a duplicate at OASIS.
Meanwhile, I would like to thank every one of the 1400 of subscribers and contributors to the list for an extraordinary and quite possibly unique experience of watching the birth and development of XML over the last three years. Many thanks folks, and see you all, as they say, in the new home shortly!
