Hello,


We have an XML library proposal. I know Tomek Sowinski was working on 
such. What is the status? Does Tomek or someone else want to apply as a 
mentor for this project?


Thanks,

Andrei

The writer is close to being ready to be discussed, I've been working on th= e documentation lately. As for the parser, I got a pretty much good idea ho= w to go about it but the code is pretty much in the woods. At work I've cha= nged teams which entails lots of reading to get myself up to pace in the ne= w area, travelling to an office abroad, and working till late with code I d= on't know yet. Now, that's not an excuse, just an honest answer to "what's = taking so long". I'm still willing to pull this module through. The work fr= enzy is clearing out and most probably I'll have the time to do some solid = work this month and on.

Perhaps let's do it this way: I'll finish the writer, get it through commun= ity scrutiny myself, out of GSoC. The GSoC contribution to std.xml will be = limited in scope to parsing. I will serve as a light bulb with all I read u= p so far on the topic, the lessons learned from my tries, and several years= of experience with D. This way the density of reviews as well as the odds= of bringing the module home will be higher. If that sounds good, let me know how to apply as a mentor. --=20 Tomek
