Good idea. Actually, more than "showing interest in
FOP development", Chris has already submitted
substantive patches in layout (the most complex part
of our system) with welcome enthusiasm. He's also a
competent Java and XSLT developer in his own right,
i.e. outside of FOP, and hence can be trusted in
voting decisions on FOP's architectural direction.
And, yes, a very mundane detail but important for FOP work: he knows CVS and Ant!
He would be a good addition to the team, hopefully providing us more help with layout (and the renderers, if I may get a little more greedy... ;)
thanks for the vote of confidence Glen, and the rest of the FOP Dev Team. Actually I thought you were pretty disappointed with my attempts at playing with layout-I stand corrected.
Best wishes for the new year,
