Welcome to the Open Siddur Project Technical Discussion Group

This forum carries all public technical discussion for the Open Siddur Project.  This is the place to talk about code, XML schemas, implementation details, and similar topics.

Our coding project is in an early stage of development, and we are working toward a useful and usable product.  As an open source project, we can only advance by the contributions made by our developers.  To learn more about what is happening now and where help is required, see our milestones on github:

Feel free to introduce yourself to the group by sending an introductory email.  You may include your own interests in the project in this email and/or tell us what aspect(s) of the project you would like to help develop.

  • All list discussions are archived at!forum/opensiddur-tech
  • Please keep discussions on-topic.
  • When responding to an email, it is good practice to quote just enough context in your email message so a reader can follow the chain of discussion without reading the entire previous message (inline posting style, see 
  • When replying, please reply to the list unless the poster asked to be cc:'d or emailed privately.
  • Disagreement is expected, and should be conducted with the principles of derekh eretz (common courtesy and consideration) in mind.  A guideline is to keep discussion focused on ideas, instead of on the messenger.
  • To prevent the list from getting spammed, the first message any new members sends to the list is moderated.  We have a zero tolerance policy for spam.  Sending a single spam message to the list results in a permanent ban.
