Sourceforge, Chemistry, XML and CML



This is sort of a general purpose post with several observations and some
 information to post
 1.  Many of you know about  http://www.sourceforge.net (but if you don't, you
 should).  It supports around  37,000 OpenSource projects.
 2. It was a small surprise to me to find relatively few references on the
 CCS pages to it (about  30, going back two years).
 3. Given this, it was perhaps no surprise to find they have no subject category
 such as  "chemistry" or  "molecular science" at
 sourceforege.
 Bio-informatics certainly has!
 Remember, we are the community that started this with the QCPE archive
 in the early 1960s!  Whatever happened?
 4. Well, it will hardly come as a surprise to see me posting:
 http://cml.sourceforge.net/
 Its still early days , but this site will contain much to do with
 XML,  such as  XML libraries, including  XSD (schemas),
 XSLT (filters and transformations)
 and various Java-based tools, mostly relating to  CML (Chemical markup language)
 Its software, "but not as you may know it".
 If  you wish to learn, ask FAQs, or make contributions, do please consider
 joining the mailing list linked to  the site.
 5. An of course we join a select community of other  chemistry projects
 homed there.  A short list of these exists on our site, but no doubt it
 will grow (and apologies to anyone who is not there yet, let me know and
 you will be!)
