If any companies in London want to use FOP and need professional advice then
please contact me (www.OWAL.co.uk). I am considering providing FOP consultancy
and support but need to evaluate the demand before employing more developers
I think the best way to pay for open source development of FOP is if
development takes place in response to real life business requirements.
This is why I am looking at bringing together a team of people experienced with
Apache/XML/Cocoon/FOP/Tomcat/etc and offering that service to corporations
as a business venture rather than a loose bunch of highly skilled
but erratic open source developers.
Ideally that team need to be in London - but if there is the demand then
I can look at employing European developers on a part time basis.
(There are too many problems for my firm to pay non European Union people
unless they are really worth it :-)
Open Source Credentials:
I have already used FOP in one significant production environment
and would like to use this knowledge again elsewhere.
I admit I am not a FOP committer - but I hope to have made a small effort by
helping out with the FAQ.
My next job for the FOP FAQ is to extract a short - plain html version of the FAQ
which can be included in the official docs and put on the official website.
I also have experience of Turbine, Jetspeed Tomcat and Jyve and are using them in
professional sites ( www.DiverseBooks.com )
My biggest problem is that I am not allowed to use the word Apache in advertising
according to the licensing agreement. Does anyone know where to discuss this?
I hope the rambling above isn't too far off topic...
