Hi there,

This is just to let you guys know that, I'll be gearing up to work on 
generic XML import and export in the next few weeks, and probably more. 
  I mentioned this briefly in the blog I wrote yesterday:


The plan is to do the implementation in the orcus library, and implement 
callbacks in LibreOffice proper.

The core of the feature involves enabling import and export of generic 
XML which relies on a separate schema file to define the structure of 
the content.  I will set up a good amount of test harness for this in 
the orcus library in order to keep the amount of filter test low in the 
libreoffice build while maintaining a healthy amount of testing for this 
new filter.

The specifics of the feature, especially on the UI side, is yet to be 
decided, and for now, I will focus on the backend loading portion of the 

All the best,
