SIG for XML Processing in Python

SIG for XML Processing in Python

This list has been created to provide a forum for discussion and implementation of tools to make Python an excellent choice for XML processing.

Mission Statement

XML is the Extensible Markup Language, a standard defined by the World Wide Web Consortium. Originally developed as a standard to enable the interchange of structured data, XML has expanded to encompass databases, distributed computing, and so on. The XML Topic Guide, maintained by the XML SIG, contains links to documentation, source, and so on.

While Python includes basic XML processing capabilities, the goal of this SIG is to make Python become the premier language for XML processing. The SIG, through the mailing list and the PyXML project hosted on SourceForge, is helping to decide what software is required for this purpose, and coordinate its implementation and documentation.
