Debian SGML/XML packages (was Package wanted: libxml-grove-perl)


I have to wait with packaging libxml-perl since it needs Perl 5.005,
and also XML::Parser (already available), XML::DOM and XML::Grove.
Further, on the perl-xml mailing list I also saw XML::Catalog
being announced which needs some other not yet debianized modules.

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.

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".

Further, we could even setup a debian-sgml-xml mailing list to discuss 
related issues.  Adam also has been thinking about a "Debian/SGML(/XML?)
Tutorial", but he's (too? ;-) busy.  Maybe we can help out here.  Again
in other words, we could make Debian really become _the_ SGML and XML
platform of choice.  Of course, this takes time, but we at least could
give it a start.
