WSCCI Web Services Format Sprint Report

A small team met in Paris at the office of Commerce Guys from June 3-5th to discuss Drupal's web services serialization and syndication format needs. In short, "OK, we are going to have all of this fun new routing capability, now what do we do with it?" More specifically, how do we go about serializing Drupal data for consumption by remote programs (either other Drupal sites as in the case of content staging, other non-Drupal sites, client-side applications, or mobile apps), and what protocols and APIs do we make available to manipulate that data?

In attendance were:

IRC cloaks

Please add your IRC nick and drupal.org user id below if you want a drupal IRC cloak. We want to hand it to people who have some idea about how the Drupal community works. So here are three possible ways to decide that:

  • Common sense (I.E. any well known member of the community for which cloak eligibility would be blatantly obvious)
  • Have a full, non-sandbox project, link to it.
  • Has at least two eligible people vouch for them.
