Well, I think that I might be up to that task.
Since I have been saying so much about what SCO
has already done and what we hope to do in future,
and because I'd like to take a crack at doing an RFC,
I'd like to offer to take this on.

However, there are a couple of stipulations...

First, I have to check with my manager to see
if I am allowed to spend the time on this.
I don't see any problems, but I should check.

Second, I am out of town for 12 days starting
tomorrow morning and may not have regular access
to email while I am gone.

I will be able to advise the working group by
Tuesday as to whether I am allowed. At that
time, perhaps the working group -- or at least
the chairs -- could let me know if they want
me to take this on.

If so, I'll get started on pulling notes together
over the next couple of weeks and hope to have
an RFC together fairly quickly.

What say you?
