I currently do not have plans to work on SRU. However, there is a student
here who is going to be doing a minor project on ZiNG, so he might
have a go. But it may be slow progress initially (he has no Z39.50
If someone could give me a strong reason to have a go at SRU, I could.
But at present, SRW is what has my interest. I want to be able to say
to customers "Z39.50 is good! Looks to big? Here is a cut down SOAP API."
The customer's programmers can then go off and use the API in their
favorite programming language. SRU is possibly too simple for me in
order to appeal to programmers.
