Ok, I'll try to tackle it myself then (even if my time is getting short
as well not that CLI is working as I wanted)

I perfectly understand.

should we move to Xalan2 to fix these?

Is there anyone that wants to help replacing Xalan1 with Xalan2 using
the TRaX interfaces?

yes, we have to fix this ourselves.

hmmmm, I'll be -1 on entering beta state with such a big change in
paradigm... don't get me wrong, I've seen your action proposal and I
think it's a great addition to the sitemap model, but we haven't played
with it directly and we cannot guarantee the semantics/api/schema will
remain the same in the near future.

I'd like to have an alpha release soon.

The showstopper, for me, it's stylebook presence: I won't release with
stylebook-generated docs... but C2 is currently not powerful enough to
match stylebook abilities.

See next mail.

But after this, I'll write a small user guide and plan to come up with
an alpha release... I don't care if things will change or not... but I'm
perfectly aware of the fact that without releasing, there will be very
few people trying it out and less chances to fix things soon enough to
avoid doing harm in the future.

So, the day stylebook is matched by C2, I'd release the alpha, what do
you say?

No problem... just reminding you of that.

Stefano Mazzocchi      One must still have chaos in oneself to be
                          able to give birth to a dancing star.
