One note of caution: these are blockers for the first alpha, not the fina=
release. However, work remaining between the alpha and the final release=
almost all in the server, and is not at all expected to be in cDomlette, =
the alpha should still suit your purposes (being able to point your users=
to a =
prereq package for Narval 1.2).
Well, you, Alexandre, and Sylvain have already been very helpful with one=
them. There are one or more remaining points of cDomlette that lead to =
crashing, and there are known memory leaks. On some machines 4Suite Serv=
will not run using cDomlette: immediate core dump.
The main problem is that MikeO and I know the code best. Mike is on vaca=
and I cannot reproduce these problems on my machine in order to allow me =

I think the most useful help would be in beefing up the cDomlette tests (=
4Suite/test/Xml/Core/) so that they reliably reproduce the problems, whic=
should allow me to quickly fix them. Sylvain said you lot had a stress t=
for cDomlette (though he noted that it's not showing the problems for him=
either), I'd be grateful if some variation on this could be added to the =
suite. Any other additions should make it easier all the time for me to =
The second blocking issue is a problem with Teud, the Python/XML document=
software we use, under Python 2.2. Jeremy is working on this, and the fi=
x may =
be in by now.
