I'm planning to put out a SAX2/Java bug-fix release this fall, and I
may still try to help with a C++ version, but other than that, I think
that I'm done with SAX.
SAX needs a new maintainer.
Since SAX is through its initial rapid-development stage, I'm inclined
to hand it over to an institution rather than to an individual. I've
considered the W3C and OASIS, but since SAX is really a developers'
project rather than a standards-writers' project, I wondered if the
Apache Project might not make the best home -- they're well set up to
deal with this sort of thing, and have demonstrated a high degree of
The alternative is to find someone who can continue to maintain SAX
through XML-Dev, and who can win the support of enough XML-Devvers to
make real progress. I'll be happy to listen to nominations. SAX is
in the Public Domain, but morally, at least, XML-Dev owns it, and the
members should collectively decide what's going to happen to it.
All the best,
