I guess it'll be harder to find volunteers for the ws part :-)

Two thoughts:

1) At some point of time, we'll have to define a mapping from CMIS to 
JCR (relatively simple) *and* the other way around (now that's harder). 
So, how to map identifiers (types, paths), what to do with the CMIS 
relation objects and so on. Should we start a design document (a text 
file) for that, or would a Wiki work better?

2) I think that having a separate connector for CMIS in addition to 
WebDAV should be avoided. We essentially would mint different HTTP URLs 
for the same thing. So maybe not now, but at a later point of time it 
would be good if we could merge the new functionality into the existing 
WebDAV stack.

BR, Julian
