I got a DM in HootSuite today from Raymond Mitchell (aka @iwkid):
We went back and forth a little, and I ended up creating the SharePoint XSL Templates project.
This is an idea I’ve had for a while, but just hadn’t gotten to. Raymond’s prod made me actually do it. Creating a new Codeplex project is the easy part. You then have to figure out how you are going to manage it and organize it.
In the near term, I’ve set up several links on the home page of the project (http://spxslt.codeplex.com/) that will let you pitch in your favorite bits of XSL.
I’m interested in hearing your ideas about how to organize things to make it the most useful. There won’t really be releases. Maybe just use the wiki? It will be good to have each template as a standalone file for download, though. I suppose each could just be an attachment to its own wiki page?
For those of you who are asking yourselves the perennial question “How can he do this for free?” (I’ve already gotten the question twice after setting this up.), that’s a very good question. What are your thoughts? I’ve enabled advertising, but that will bring in only small sums. Would you pay to use the XSL I collect?
