   RE: [xml-dev] relax ng public list?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

On the other hand, what is asked often gets attention. 

The problem of RELAX NG and evangelism is not that the 
awareness is low; it is that the tools on most desktops 
don't support it.  Even in the case of XML Schema, a lot 
of GUI is there to hide it.  The dominant 
use of schema languages is possibly/probably a subset 
which all of the current schema languages support and 
the edge cases don't interest the dominant tool vendors. 

Changing the perception of usefulness of any XML tool or application 
often involves persuading the "high and mighty".  XML-Dev 
is a good place to do that.   It isn't possibly a great 
place to get corner questions answered.

  If you don't build an identity, it's hard to build a community.

This list has a lot of drawback, lot of people won't subscribe to
it due to the volume, and precisely the fact that it spans a very
wide set of topics. People looking into learning Relax-NG may
subscribe to a dedicated list but walk away when looking at xml-dev.
This list is rather intimidating for newbies, and that's not 
really its target either based on the discussion going here.

Not having dedicated resources is IMHO an error, that would not
prevent discussing or comparing Relax-NG here for those comfortable
with xml-dev,
