Hi everyone,

Due to the positive feedback on our request if you were interested in
an EXPath MongoDB Module, we (i.e., Dannes Wessels and me) are now
delighted to announce the first working draft of the new
specification. The module has been designed to be compatible with
XQuery 3.1 and XPath 3.1. It has been inspired by existing MongoDB
drivers and the MongoDB Meta Driver recommendations. Its initial
version was based on Dannes' Mongrel extension for eXist-db.

I have attached the working draft to this mail. It is also available
in the EXPath repository [1], and we can even provide you with some
first QT3 test cases [2] to ensure compatibility across different

We are looking forward to your feedback,

First impressions very good. Hoping to give detailed feedback soon.
