Hi everybody. Pardon the cross-posting.

Jangle, an open specification to apply the Atom Publishing Protocol to
library services and resources, has just released a draft version of a
1.0 release spec.

http://jangle.org/drupal/1_0rev1spec

The goal of Jangle is to provide a very simple and easily
understandable RESTful interface to library data that can be accessed
with common commodity Atom clients.

The draft spec has been released to get feedback on the usefulness and
clarity of the specification and to solicit ideas for how to improve
Jangle for use in actual production environments. If you have any
opinions, positive or negative; criticisms, constructive or otherwise,
feel free to leave comments.

Grammar and sentence structure could definitely use attention.

For a more in-depth introduction to Jangle, there is an article in the
latest issue of the Code4Lib Journal, "Unveiling Jangle: Untangling
Library Resources and Exposing them through the Atom Publishing
Protocol" available at: http://journal.code4lib.org/articles/109
(although the API responses have changed since this article was
written, the basic architecture remains the same).

To join the Jangle development process, feel free to join our Google
Group at: http://groups.google.com/group/jangle-discuss or contribute

Thanks!
-Ross.
