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
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:
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!)
