All,    (01)

Once again,    (02)

May I draw people's attention to the Ontolog IPR Policy (see:
http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?WikiHomePage#nid32)    (03)

... and cordially request that we move discussions of proprietary
technologies (and approaches) offline, or await the events/settings
when we make prior arrangement to waive the "openness' requirement for
vendors.    (04)

Thank you for your attention.    (05)

Regards.  =ppy
