xmlproc maintainer?

P: n/a
Hello all,

We recently (about a week ago) sent a patch to the maintainer of
xmlproc, but we didn't receive a reply yet. A look at the site reveals
that the last update was somewhere in 2000.

Does anybody know who the current maintainer is (if that changed), or
what the status of xmlproc is? We kind of depend on it...

The patch fixes a buffering problem if the XML contains utf-8 codes,
which gets especially problematic if one such character pair starts as
the last byte in the buffer... Patch attached, in case someone can use it.
Regards,

Alban Hertroys,

xmlproc is maintained as part of PyXML now; please sent the patch to
the patches tracker at sf.net/projects/pyxml.

That said, PyXML did not have a release on its own for quite some time,
either; mainly due to lack of user interest.
