Yes, I have been there. OSCOM at Berkeley was great (well, I was one
of the organizers;-)

Zope/Plone ruled as the Python community would probably say. I guess at 
least 80% of the people were there because of them.

I very much believe in Cocoon, Java, XML, XSLT and Wyona (of course), 
but I am getting tired of this "religion thing" and I think one can 
learn and use a lot
from "other" projects and there is a lot of collaboration possible if
you really want to cross the bridge.

Xopus and Bitflux make us certainly coming closer, because "we" all can 
need them. But there are other topics which are going to help us to

Concerning Cocoon, I think it would be very important to advertise more
that you can use Python (and PHP?) within XSP. I think one of the 
reasons why the Apache Server project is so successfull is because it
is kind of neutral and you can use it with all kind of languages.

Well, anyway it would be nice to meet more Cocoon users/devs at the next 
conference. I know Berkeley was a bit far away from "Europe", but the 
next OSCOM conference will probably be held a bit closer: at Harvard 
University by the end of March 2003 (not definitive yet).

All the best
