Hi Cameron,

OGC would very much like to be the source of documentation where possible to keep you from duplicating effort! Perhaps you could link to our material where it is current and useful (as you referenced in your mail) and I will be sure to keep you informed as we accelerate our “implementer-friendly” standards documentation. Examples of such documentation can be found here:
http://cite.opengeospatial.org/pub/cite/files/edu/index.html <http://cite.opengeospatial.org/pub/cite/files/edu/index.html>

Where the OSGeo community has developed superior documentation, you may want to stick with that material until we get our material ready.

Best Regards,

Scott Simmons
