GSoC XML library proposal
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 the documentation lately. As for the parser, I got a pretty much good idea how to go about it but the code is pretty much in the woods. At work I've changed teams which entails lots of reading to get myself up to pace in the new area, travelling to an office abroad, and working till late with code I don'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 frenzy 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 community 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 up 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.
