Recently I got an XTech 2006 speaker notification. It said that acceptance or rejection notifications would be sent this week, and some more papers would be selected at the week of 27 February and later.
I believe that my XSieve proposal isn't in the category "undoubtedly should be rejected", but I don't expect it's in the category "definitely should be accepted". I think it's somewhere in the middle.
I surmise that XTech reviewers might read my blog, so I'd like to incentive you: vote for XSieve acceptance! XSieve isn't a revolution in XML world, but it's anyway an important milestone and worth to be popularized.
