Bookmark Spec

I’ve sent a draft for a desktop bookmark spec on fd.o, and it got reviewed – mostly by the KDE people, that got already a standard way of storing bookmarks across the desktop.

If it reaches the common approval, I’ll apply for a CVS account on’s server.

Meanwhile, I’m working on the implementation of the spec on the Gnome side: I already have a model/viewer approach set, and now I’m writing a generic XBEL object using GLib. It’s quite fun, I must admit. Well, it’s fun since I’ve found an implementation of an XBEL parser using libxml2 inside Galeon.

I hope to have a Gnome platform library for the bookmarks spec ready before GUADEC arrives…
