I concur mostly with you, Shane: xml-commons shouldn't become a
repository of useful pieces of code (but another subproject like
"xml-tools" might, that's not a bad idea) but more of "glue code"
between the different xml.apache.org subprojects. xml-commons should
prevent subprojects to reinvent the wheel and provide a common
repository of shared code (hence the name). This should, as you
mentioned, help the individual subprojects to interact more closely.
IMHO all subprojects should search for pieces of code that can be
"outsourced" to xml-commons.

A repository of XML and XSL tools, maybe called "xml-tools", should be
kept separate from xml-commons. I see xml-commons as a
inter-xml.apache.org project, and a tool collection definitely would
target more on users than on xml.apache.org subprojects. And if
something from xml-tools becomes used by some xml.apache.org subprojects
it always can be moved over to xml-commons.

Since I kind of propose another xml.apache.org subproject I crosspost
this to general@xml.apache.org *ducks and runs*
