I have to back this up. A mailing list named "...-comment" doesn't seems like a way to build up a community. And the other list is private to OASIS members. If the people behind Relax-NG really want it to succeed the http://www.relaxng.org/ website should be more widely advertized, and have the minimal parts needed for a community to build, like a free public, archived mailing-list, some mechanism for news announcement, etc. like many other community had been built on-line in the last few years. I think the xmlschema-dev@w... mailing list made more for the deployment of W3C XML Schenas than the quality of the earlier implementation. And relying purely on the toolkit software users list dilutes the informations and doesn't really build up a community sense, IMHO.
