Thanks for your response and URL. Could you please update us on current
status and schedule for OGC documentation.
* Is the documentation at
draft, ready for production, other?
* Is there a maintenance program in place to ensure that this
documentation is continuously kept up to date? Eg: to update existing
documentation whenever a new standard is published.
* It appears that the URL provided only mentions WMS KML, SLD, SE, CSW
standards. Is there any commitment to generate documentation for other
Warm regards, Cameron
