Subject RE: [Wings] charting development
Date Mon, 13 May 2002 18:58:13 GMT

this could be of interest for the charting stuff needed for Forrest
( we plan to provide visitors with number of downloads, commits, mails, etc...
preferably also in a graphical presentation. We have been trying to do
some direct XML2SVG using XSLT but that is painful at best.

Could your stuff be packaged as a Cocoon component? Is there some place
where we can take a look at it?
