Re: [xml-dev] RE: James Clark: XML versus the Web

XQuery was the one big exception to the rule. I didn't originally list it when I was writing the note, but added it at the last minute because it looks to be a spec that was made by a committee of exceptional people (and perhaps because there was time to really think through what was trying to be accomplished). Thanks for the correction.

A correction here - my contribution to XQuery was entirely as part of the "smoothing out" effort - my role was as bug-fixer. The original ideas can be largely attributed to Jonathan Robie, Don Chamberlin, and Dana Florescu.

XQuery was very much a committee effort. The main reason it took so long was that there were too many good people with creative ideas participating in the process. That the final result had some technical coherence can be largely attributed, in my view, to the arbitration skills of Don Chamberlin, Mary Fernandez, and Paul Cotton.
