RE: [xml-dev] XML Buzzwords. RFC

I can't say I fully digested this ... but it sounds a bit like the "XML Wikipedia" thread a month or so ago.
Leigh Dodds has offered to host prototypes of this kind of thing on his http://weblogs.userland.com/eclectic/
site, as I recall.
The technology is probably not the issue, it's devising a process that motivates people to contribute yet keeps the hype and spin and flames to a minimum that's the challenge, IMHO.

Subject: [xml-dev] XML Buzzwords. RFC
What I suggest is an attempt to stop constant, useless
and resource consuming holy wars. I suggest to
stop those wars with bulding some common space
that would be driven by plain technologizm ( there
is no political games on CPAN and CPAN is what've
made perl to become one of the most sucessfull software
However, I should stress out that building yet another
XMLSoftware or XSA framework is *not* what I'm
suggesting. I'm suggesting the common space that would
be freely open to *all of us* "no matter what your religion,
race, nationality or regardless of any negative political
history with us" and would also have W3C blessing.
