This is Sam Ruby, and I'm flattered that somebody has taken the time to create this wikipedia entry. I'm aware of the controversy surrounding people who edit their own entries, so from time to time, I'll check the discussion page, answer a few questions, and make a few comments.
I see that Ken has partially updated my current positions w.r.t. the ASF. However, I am no longer active in ECMA. Either the ECMA and CLI portions should be struck, or this should be changed to "holds or has held". If the latter, the chairmanship of Jakarta should be restored, release manager for Tomcat 3.1, developer on Axis, and member of the PHP group should be added. In either case, secretary of the IETF AtomPub working group is still current information.
The link to the Atom standard in the prose is broken.
Oh, and the Feed Validator supports RSS 1.1 too.

Okay. I have recently been working on the Atom (standard) article, Tim Bray's bio article, the web feed / web syndication articles (which I am going to merge soon) and I have touched both Rogers Cadenhead and Dave Winer's bios. It seemed that your article was missing from the bunch. While it is cool for you to offer to answer questions, Wikipedia works mostly by stringing together referencable third party sources (and this is the way it should be because if no one felt it was important enough to write down somewhere, then it isn't probably notable enough to get into Wikipedia) -- although there is no issue with you pointing editors towards third party sources we were not aware of. I have referenced a bunch of pages I found on the Apache projects to support the list of current positions. --Ben Houston 04:09, 24 February 2006 (UTC)
Fair enough. A partial list of projects at Apache that I'm involved in can be found here. I'd suggest not bothering to enumerate them. I'd go further and suggest dropping SOAP and XML. The only one that might be worth adding is Gump (which I created), and perhaps Ant.
- Added the links to Ant and Gump, though the gump one is a placeholder. Someone needs to write it up, and it won't be me. As for SOAP, why do all the ex-WS-* People deny their past? SteveLoughran 19:17, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

- Thanks, that improved the article. I think the last thing missing from this article is an image -- although it needs to be uploaded by someone that owns the copyright on it -- see Special:Upload. Also, if you have permission to use the Atom logo, it would fit nicely into the Atom (standard) article. --Ben Houston 16:59, 28 February 2006 (UTC)
I'll check into the Atom logo.
