I don't know how to formulate this email so that it doesn't sound as 
critical or inflamatory which is not at all the intent, but the number 
of emails and threads which I am skipping on xml-dev seems to be growing 
exponentialy these days.

I do not want to give any judgment on the quality on these mails (this 
would be too personal and subjective) but I am primarly interested in 
core XML technologies (maybe I should call this hardcore or extreme XML) 
and not that much in specific applications (such as Web Services to name 
one) nor phylosophical or business discussions (I have nothing against 
phylosophers nor businessmen and have even some specimens in my family 
but just don't understand them).

I am longing for a list rich of actual angle brackets, dedicated to 
technical discussions (such as the xml-dev which has given birth to SAX 
and RDDL, discussed pro and cons of schema languages or XUpdate 
syntaxes, used to help the newbies, ...).

The point of this email is just to try to understand if xml-dev is such 
a list (and then the mails and theads I am skipping are more or less out 
of topic) or if I need to search another place (which may eventually 
still need to be created)!

Eric (hoping he is not starting an endless thread)
See you in Barcelona.
