   Re: [xml-dev] Schema Compatability - was Re: [xml-dev] incompatible uses

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Of course whenever you are in a hurry silly things tend to get in your way:


None-the-less, I am working this out and will hopefully have a web
service up and running that utilizes Saxon.NET and SubversionSharp to
allow quick and painless submission of stylesheets as well as a base
foundation in which can become its permanent URI reference within the
import statement, which will literally allow a permanent URI home for
your import elements within your stylesheets.  Im also working on
various ways to use the same URI and yet use a local copy of a
Subversion repository if its up to date or a variety of global copies
of the repositories hosted by anyone willing to take the bandwidth hit
maintaining such a repository would require...

In the mean time the Trac UI will help aid the development of ideas as
to the type of functionality we are going to need but yet dont have
through any other existing code base that we can tap into...  Feel
free to use the Wiki on that site to begin content creation :)
