Hi all, 2 words about me. working for Sourcesense, committer of Apache POI implementing the Open XML format support, very close to the CM world, in particular to JCR; I have been also working on Alfresco for a couple of years.
I am very excited by this thread, since I am one of those hoping that CMIS could be, at least, a battering-ram towards better interoperability among CM vendors. >The specification is in a very early stage and a lot of things >need to be addressed , but it has peeked the interest of a number >of people at Apache already. Yes, this is because there is already a missing brick for CMIS in order to be successful, that is a Reference Implementation where to build the Specs. > Sounds good.

So, here is one! I like the proposal to create a sandbox where we can put stuff that could turn out very good stuff or just junk... Yes: sandbox + committers r/w on it would be the simplest approach.
