Subject Re: [Incubator Wiki] Update of "HotdoGProposal" by H. Joe Lee
Date Mon, 29 Apr 2013 23:29:03 GMT
I have some qualms about this as a stand-alone project. It's a conversion
tool between two defined formats. You will build it, it will get done, and
then what? What will keep a community engaged? If would make more sense to
imaging some project that was in the business of building and maintaining a
suite of related tools, where new things could be expected to come up.
