Subject Re: [VOTE-counted +17] Proposal: new xml-commons subproject for standards-based files
Date Thu, 26 Apr 2001 19:21:45 GMT

Given the positive response and good comments on the general@xml list
recently about this proposal, I'd like to ask the PMC to put their blessing
on it and start the wheels rolling to form the new xml-commons subproject.

Although I haven't studied up yet on the physical details on starting a new
subproject (bad Shane! - like how many active xml committers are there
total?), it definitely feels like the right thing to do:
- we have a good number of positive votes (17)
- we've had good period of open and active discussion on the issue for the
past several weeks
- there have been no negative votes, nor even any notably negative comments
- we've sparked discussions about Java, C, and perl items for xml-commons;
sharing and coordination with both all other xml subprojects as well as
with jakarta-commons; and we've had several volunteers with explicit items
they'd like to do in xml-commons.

Therefore and forsooth we do beg to our honorable PMC that in their wisdom,
yada yada yada, can we start our new xml-commons project?  8-)

One addendum: as suggested by someone and as done in other projects, we
should have an xml-commons-cvs mailing list that sends out CVS notices
along with the xml-commons-dev list (or maybe just call it commons-dev if
you like and think it won't be confusing with jakarta-commons).
