There are many ideas floating around to take advantage of AOLServers use an application server. A big problem I see is that nobody knows who is really doing what.
For example, several people have said that they want to see a SOAP implementation. Who is actually working on this? I would be interested but I don't want to start work on something that someone else is already working on. There are probably many packages in the same boat. If someone is writing a package I may need it would be better to know about it.
Can we have a page of ancillary projects (ideally it should be a package, but a page will suffice for now)? That way the community can have a much better idea of where things are going.
