   rddl people. Re: [xml-dev] RDDL (was RE: [xml-dev] Negotiate Out TheNois

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

That I remember, but I wanted the answer not from you.

Whatever. Unfortunately, your answer is just a part of 
possible answer. One can write APIs on top of APIs 
no matter how crazy are the APIs. What is the application 
that you gonna build with your API? What is the *task*?

I understand that the question is hard. If you have no 
answer - just say : "I don't know. Just playing with APIs"
and that would be a honest answer. As I said - 
I see nothing wrong with that. Some interesting things 
can pop up out of such activities. 

The only thing needed in this case would be saying loud:
"RDDL is our student project, we're just playing 
with APIs". And please remove my name from the 
paper. I'm not playing with RDDL APIs, why should 
I be listed as a contributor?

OK, I see. I ask too much. I want people to be 
honest with themselves.

is a game with words.

To describe the clear task one should decompose 
'processing'  into something more particular.

I feel like I'm talking to one of PHBs, who 
asks me : "well ... you - go write me some prorgam 
that would simplify  my interaction with the 

The first thing I ( and you ) would ask him 
will be : 'what do you mean by "interaction"' ?

What do you mean by "processing" ?

Now you can start joking or playing that you
don't understand what I'm talking about, like 
you did in the beginning of the thread.

I think the number of 'RDDL supporters' is 
very small. I guess it should be easy to 
identify all of them and I think that being 
'RDDL supporter' would not be a good 
thing for the reputation.
