The EBNF specification for the broker rule language is up for review. You can check it out from CVS or view it here: http://mail.gnu.org/pipermail/babe-coredevel/2002-December/000002.html This specification will be used for writing rules for data brokering, so please submit any comments, questions and suggestions to the Babe coredevel mailing list babe-coredevel@nongnu.org. It is especially important to get feedback if people can find deficiencies in the language, as it will be easier to make those changes in the design phase.
