Well, in the timeline, it sais that the coding should begin on May 24th.
Until then, I am of course able to read documentation, check examples, use
the APIs myself, and get acquainted to everything I need to work on this
project. I already did a svn checkout of the boost repository and Stefan's
sanbox project, and I looked around the source code.
@Andrew: I only mentioned libxml2 because Stefan's boost::xml is using it
too, and I thought that this project involves developing it further. But I
think we need his opinion on this issue. :) BTW, will he mentor the project,
or somebody else?
