And why the wiki is a good place to collect stuff.
But the wiki seems to have fallen into disuse.
I tried it this eve. and it's very slow. Can it be hosted somewhere
faster? Who looks after it?

Obviously, we'd want those Ph.D.s who *do* understand REST at a deep level to vet it for accuracy, but I'd love to see something concise that captured the key points that the people doing the "engineering" could work from.The tricky questions are:a) Can you write something like that for a "general" audience, or does each subgroup need something tailored for its needs in order for it to make actionable sense?b) Can REST really be compressed to 1-3 pages without becoming a marketing brochure? :-)I don't know the answers -- which perhaps explains some of the skepticism you received -- but I for one think any attempt to move in that direction would be worthwhile.Good luck!-- Ernie P.
