Willful cross-posting always causes problems. However announcements 
on XML-DEV are not a problem, so long as they include a sufficient 
level of detail. Peter Murray Rust had the following to say on the 

"Please can announcements of commercial software include enough 
metadata (but not too much) to enable XML-DEVers to judge whether the 
link is worth exploring." [1]

"The primary criteria is that any announcements
(software/conferences/jobs/books etc.) be of general interest to the
XML-DEV community." [2]
