The White Papers
Feedback and comments are welcome on any of these papers. Send to firstname.lastname@example.org. Or call if you really need to tell us off.
Openesque white papers are like most white papers: they discuss a particular topic in some depth. And, like most white papers, they tend to be revised and updated only when people actually read them and provide feedback on them. At the very bottom of each, in small font, is a CVS tag with the revision date. You may want to check that if you're coming back to get a copy or refer a friend to one of these.
