We thought about topic maps and knowledge management features in the Prowler
developer team. You may have heard about Prowler, which is related to the
Cocoon Project very closely. Prowler provides content management functionalities
and uses Cocoon to transform the (XML) content to the clients format. Would
be nice to see TM in combination with Cocoon and Prowler.
