Subject RE: [Vote]: Where to define the sitemap components?
Date Thu, 14 Mar 2002 10:12:29 GMT
Ok, this seems to be a very difficult task then.

Let me state the following:
a) There shouldn't be two places where one can define the sitemap
   so it's rather the xconf or the sitemap. But having both is absolutly
b) Having said a), if we decide for the xconf, it will *not* be possible
   to define custom components in sub-sitemaps!
c) If we opt for defining the components in the sitemap (as it is now)
   we help the sitemap editor in writing the pipelines as he can simply
   see which components are available.

So, SoC or not, is the above really what we want? I think, no!

Hmm, currently I'm thinking of voting -1 for defining the components
in the xconf. This would create a deadlock. Very interesting
and funny thing...
