Re: Look at what Jody does not what "community" pundits say.

Frankly Jody supports OOXML as an ISO and has already aided in it becoming a Standard and him being the representative for GNOME at ECMA, an organization only interested in making OOXML a Standard would seem like a terrible conflict. And Jody repeatedly praising OOXML at ODF expense makes him suspect. At http://www.linux.com/feature/119847 just a few months ago he sounded like a Microsoft representative preaching support for OOXML. GNOME getting involved in the this highly political process was a stupid mistake to begin with. It is hard to understand how they could make that decision unless there are other motives. But Gnome continues with thier charade like saying they requesting clarification, constructive criticism, feedback and helping develop a specification to make it easier to implement/adopt is not supporting it.
