That's why I'm waiting on packaging XML::DOM, BTW, because it depends on Perl 5.005, also. I've got a package built, but it's no good until Perl 5.005 is uploaded. XML::CGI and XML::Writer are currently in the distro, as well, and I'm working on packaging pretty much anything else other than libxml-perl that's in the XML modules section of CPAN... if you want anything else/have anything else already packaged, please, let me know so the work isn't duplicated! > All this made me think about putting together a web page listing all > the current XML Perl modules, whether they are debianized and by who, > which are their dependencies, etc. This makes it easier to track what > needs to be done, etc. <AOL/> > We could even extend this into a set of web pages listing all the SGML > and XML packages (and even those that are not yet) available in Debian, > links to other SGML/XML sites, etc. In other words, continueing where > the announcement from Adam Di Carlo titled "Debian Touts Integrated > SGML Environment" on debian-announce on March 30 "left off". <AOL/> > Further, we could even setup a debian-sgml-xml mailing list to discuss > related issues.

I'll maintain the web pages in my space on master, if I may, and also continue my work on packaging libxml-.*-perl... here's to a press release in the future: "Debian Touts Integrated SGML/XML Enviroment" ;) Thanks, Stevie -- From "Seacht rud nár mhúin Scoil Innealtóireacht" (Seven Things Engineering School Didn't Teach) #1.
