I do see your point about the stop parameter being a common paradigm in iOS, however, personally
I would prefer that we remove it, especially if the request approach works. We then have one
consistent way to cancel operations across the whole library (the parameter approach is only
applicable to methods with progress).

Great to hear you're also interested in the browser binding. I did my initial work a while
ago so I need to sync it with the recent changes but I'll commit it in a branch as soon as
I can.

I too think it would be a great idea to resurrect the status meeting, even if it's just once
a month. I will schedule something once I've committed something. Can you remind me, are you
guys able to use Google Hangouts or would webex be a better choice?

think about canceling the request via the object. I tested it and it also seems to work. We
could remove the stop flag again or leave it (as this is a common paradigm also in other iOS
methods) - what is your opinion on that?

there are still things to do to support the 1.1 atom binding. For the complete list of missing
features you should look into the Open CMIS library.

It would be great if you create a branch and share your current status with us. We could then
decide how to proceed. Maybe we can split the workload :) We should also think of restarting
the sync meeting session or use another channel to coordinate browser binding implementation
if we do this together.

the stop parameter was required when we already have a mechanism (via the CMISRequest object)

that as well some point soon. I presume this was to support the 1.1 binding? Do you know what
else we need to do in order to support a 1.1 atom binding?

have some *very* early support for the browser binding on my machine. I was thinking of creating
a branch for this once the initial commit is ready as it is going to require some minor moving
and renaming of files. Does any have any objection to the creation of a branch?

with the *stop flag and just modified the exiting ones as creating additional interfaces would
basically double all transmission interfaces.
