Subject: Tools matrix
Apropos to the discussion about assessing features in XLIFF tools, what if we were to use something like what OASIS makes available at these URLs to solicit tool vendor information?
The second one provides an easy way for DITA tools devs to supply their information. This would eliminate the need to maintain a matrix like Micah supplied in a specific document and it would let tools vendors maintain their own information. It would also ensure that anyone who accesses the information has the latest version, something we can't assure when a document is circulated and people may find older copies on the mailing lists. (I don't know if this sort of web site could be seeded with what was already collected or not, but we could reach out to vendors to have them fill in the information there.)
