Subject role of the XML federation: common xml related announcements list?
Date Sun, 04 Jul 2004 10:12:11 GMT
at the moment, the xml related ASF products are split between several 
different TLP's. soon they will be split between many different TLP's.

back in the depths of time, if you wanted to keep up with xml related 
developments at apache, you only used to need to keep an eye on the 
jakarta and xml web sites and subscribe to two announcement mailing 
lists.

now, you need to be pretty aware of what goes on where in apache if you 
want to subscribe to every list where announcements about xml related 
products may be posted. IMHO once the federation gets going, unless we 
take positive steps to provide simple, central sources of information 
which are easy for users and developers to find, it will become very 
difficult for anyone who isn't deeply involved in the xml side of 
apache to keep track of what's going on in xml-land.

so, i'd like to suggest that the federation considers changing the role 
of the xml announcements list so that it's clearly open to any apache 
community for the purpose of posting news (and in particular, product 
news) likely to be of interest to the xml community.
