Re: [xml] i'm here to contribute

I can and I can help you so it might be easy. There was another abandoned open source project, libsoap, built using libxml2. I got the latest version which did not even compile, let alone link. I repaired for AIX and Linux ... in a sloppy way. I have zero talent for Makefiles and install scripts and don't want to hassle with the other OSs ...

So ... if I gave you a tarball of this application (which is in production and works great) ... updating it for newer SOAP additions, and making it really a live application again, and maybe instead of separate, part of libxml (as an option) ... I think that would be great.

Or you could revive libsoap as standalone and see if anyone is interested. It is so easy to use with libxml2 ... and I would contribute starting with my working version, and more.

I'm a software developer and I'd like to contribute to Gnome's XML project. I've used the libxml software for a long time and I'd like to give something back.

I just started a voluntary career break, but I'd like to stay active.

I looked over the TODO file, but I'm not sure which item to tackle. Could you recommend an item for someone new to the project?

One thing that would be super cool would be multi-threaded xslt processing (e.g. for chunked document output). Unfortunately again, this is not trivial at all. But any speedup for xslt processing would be great. The docbook xml -> html step in gtk-doc is so slow that most developers to api-doc generation off still :/
