I've been following this thread started by Kent Sievers, and have a

It's OK to be disillusioned, but what are you going to do about it?

My suggestion -- openly document the format you use and show people how to
use your data (it has to be public, or at least a demo has to be).

So many formats are closed, inaccessible, covered by marketing confusion. (I
went to the Novell site for the XML directory stuff, and couldn't find a
single example, much less any real data I could build an app off of.)


Where are the examples?

Where are the live servers we can test against?

Where's the sample code that works?

This is still a standards body, not a development community.
