    Yes!!! What excellent news.

    Five and a half years ago we began working on the vision of the Web as a writeable medium, one that could be used for remote collaborative development of software projects, large documentation efforts, and other large clusters of inter-related documents. With the approval of the DeltaV protocol as a Proposed Standard, we have taken a large step forward towards making this vision a tangible reality.

    Geoff Clemm receives my thanks and respect for the key role he played in the design of the DeltaV protocol, and in pushing it forward for so long. However, it was clearly a collaborative effort, involving the Chair, Jim Amsden, the document authors, the DeltaV design team, and the DeltaV working group. All of your tireless work, sending posts, making reviews, clarifying points, led to a high quality technical standard.

    Specification in hand, we are now well along the rough road to the common byte. I look forward to working with you all in the months and years ahead to ensure this specification leads to broad interoperability.

    - Jim
