Subject Re: CMIS Library PHP
Date Sun, 18 Oct 2015 22:23:09 GMT

I (and one of my colleagues) have taken a look at the proposed submission.
 The benefits are:
  * It has slightly better coverage
  * It is 1.1 compatible
  * It uses composer which is a definite plus when looking at the future
direction of PHP.

While there is not a lot of activity on this current library, it is used
in the current Drupal CMIS module and may be used by others. I think we
will need to keep both implementations around initially for the following

  * The interface is very different.  More like the Open CMIS API, but
more complex than the current one.  Anyone using the old library will need
some time for refactoring.
  * The proposed contribution uses the browser binding, which is an
optional binding as of 1.1.  This limits the compatibility with all 1.0
repositories and potentially some 1.1 repositories.

One of the things that I had on my todo list was to work on CMIS 1.1 and
Drupal 8 Integration.  The proposed library might be a better fit for
Drupal 8 as Drupal 8 is starting to embrace some of the newer frameworks
like composer.

I think that we can deprecate the current library and make it available
for a year.  I am happy to help with transitioning over to the new
Library and perhaps helping add some additional coverage and the atom pub

I think that it makes sense to query the community to see if there will be
a continued use for a simpler interface, in which case I could add that to
a unified code base.

Thoughts (yes, no, modifications)
