First Steps?

Hi all,

I’m glad to see that EXPath is regaining momentum! Do we already know how we can further proceed from here? Maybe we could start with a little survey to find out which of the existing EXPath modules are currently used, and which may need to be revised.

I am writing this because, a few weeks ago, I have discussed an alternative ZIP module with Matthias Brantner. As you may remember, Philip Fearon, who specified the existing ZIP proposal, has no more time to work on new versions of the existing EXPath ZIP module (which we have already implemented in BaseX, but which has rarely been used until now). So I am wondering who has already worked with the ZIP module, and what are your experiences.. And the same accounts for the other EXPath modules.

Your comments?
