Broaden the scope:

  • Have another look at layout in FOP HEAD.
  • Check for some bug fixes in the maintenance branch

The interesting stuff

  • Take another stab to get the XInclude processor into XML commons. It wouldn't hurt to make an XNI wrapper and perhaps a real Xerces plugin configuration. This requires some more XNI study, I guess. Lift some code from the Cocoon XIncluder. Target: 2003-8
  • Get some work done on a validation SAX filter.
  • Make the Spell checker a sourceforge project. Ask people for lexicon contributions
  • Initial upmark of the lexicon
  • Build the lexicon management application
  • Get the Eclipse spell checking plugin ready: Target: 2003-6
  • Get the POS classification into the dictionary
  • Add hyphenation
  • Port patgen.web to Java+Unicode
  • Streamline the FOP hyphenator and factor out some code to be used from elsewhere. Ask whether Jakarta Commons would house a text utility module.
  • Get the word parser ready for production. Add to the spell checker. Target: 2003-7
  • Take another look at NL parsers. Target: much later

OK, fixes for keep-related bugs and marker probles are scratched for now. The concept for improvements of error messages by providing document locations seems to need some rework for HEAD.

  • Exceptions are underutilized. Should this be changed?
  • The back pointer for areas to generating FO needs to be set consistently. How to check for this?

FOP is near a new release milestone.

  • Use the Locator to get source file positions, extend exceptions and log messages to use this.
  • Check for more keep related bugs.
  • Fix potential marker problems.

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
