Recently the libxml-ruby project was picked up, and is being actively developed again. My co-workers and I have been needing an XML solution faster than REXML, and have decided to switch over to libxml. In the process we started adding on some functionality, and would like to continue to help in the development. I would like to use this thread as a forum for open discussion on the likes, dislikes, and desires for the libxml API, specifically I would like to look the XML::Document, XML::Node, XML::Attr, and XML::Note::Set. I am working on writing up a proposed API, and while I work I that I thought I would see what everyone else's idea's are. Please use this thread to list out any features you would like, any naming conventions you want followed, and really anything else you can think of. I will hopefully finish and post my proposed API (influenced by the responses to this thread) sometime this weekend. Thanks for all your help, Mark Van H.
