De-hyping CMIS

This week has seen REST experts Roy Fielding and Sam Ruby comment on CMIS. As someone directly involved in CMIS, I wanted to acknowledge both Roy’s remarks and Sam’s remarks, which follow onto Roy’s.

The standards effort based in OASIS that is CMIS is indeed just getting started, as Sam notes. There is a lot of work to be done, and CMIS needs timely, constructive feedback from the wider community if it is to become widely adopted.
