Ignore the first part of this and go to the "ps".

We need to provide a forum for these sort of comments from legitimate,
perspective ZNG implementors, short of carrying this discussion over the ZIG
list, or opening up the ZNG list to the public.

I suggest that we add prospective ZNG implementors case-by-case (at my
discretion).  I think that the policy we agreed to was that new "members" need
to implement the existing specs, after which they have the same stake as
everyone else, and can suggest changes.  I think that Alan Kent would agree to
this and would be a valuable addition to this effort.  So I propose we invite
him to participate.

Hi Ray,

Our test server has been behind a firewall for a while now with no-one
noticing - so we must get lots of people testing :-)
But I recently got a request from someone in India, so I put it
back up outside the firewall. I then checked the SIM entry on
the list of test servers. Everything is correct except the host name.

The SIM entry current specifies a host name of:

    bib.sia.ucl.ac.be

It should be

    z3950.simdb.com

All the request of the details are probably good enough.
Its nothing urgent, but it was curious.

Thanks!
Alan

ps: I read the ZNG related minutes with interest. I have been developing
a SOAP toolkit for SIM for other projects so might have a play.
I do not like the current WSDL file because I do not think it
correctly addresses some of the problems such as referring to old
result sets. I might try one evening to write my own version and
put up a test server for people to play with. I could try and put
up a ZNG server according to the current spec if it was of use
(well, as close as I can do it with minimal effort). I am not sure
whether its good or bad putting up too many alternatives.
I have strong personal opinions about what is good and bad out of
Z39.50 for fields outside of libraries - mainly because we use
Z39.50 pretty well every day in this way. But the Z39.50 community
is currently very much a library community, so trying to get
Z39.50 out into the bigger world (or ZNG, or whatever) I think
is going to be hard due to the community - but I think I have said
that before in a posting to the mailing list, so I will get off
my SOAP box :-)
