I'd echo Andrew's concerns, while also noting that the API section of the
web site seems to have attempted to "distance" itself from the IETF side of
the work. (That said, the fact that the host part of the URL for the
document contains the letters "ietf" is a little worrying...)
I'm also concerned that I'm seeing non-ASCII/PS documents...
Is there any chance to convert the documents to some multi-platform format?
HTML/PDF/ASCII (yeah, OK, I can fight and try to view PS, heh)? This is
definitely an issue in the security issues section where I see a PowerPoint
presentation (something I can't view on my current machine).

I've noticed that the the ietf-opes website is now hosting API documents,
this is great. Thanks for that.
I have noticed however that the way that the API documents are announced
on the website is a little inconsistent with the other documents. An
Intel document (as of yet unanounced on this public list) seems to be
being presented as a bone-fide OPES API with a document I authored being
presented as as thundercracks alternate proposal. All other documents on
the website are labeled in synopsis as title/filename/abstract without
any indication of company ownership.
Whilst I do appreciate that there are two alternate proposals and
actively want to produce a consensual document, I do object to the
presentation of a document privately authored by the co-chair's company
taking precedence over a publicly debated document. A posting in this
way could be seen as devisive. If this has been a simple oversight by the
webmaster, I apologise in advance.
