The yaml.org front page is out of date. Someone should:
- Fix the example
- Use variable indentation in the example
- Delete the news that is older than 6 weeks
- Add YAML.pm v0.30 to the news
- Add a news item for ysh
- Change the *horrid* first paragraph.
The first paragraph reads:
YAML(tm) is a straight-forward data serilization language, offering
an alternative to XML's SOAP where named lists and mixed content
(anonymous nodes within a named list) are not needed. YAML borrows
ideas from rfc822, SAX, C, HTML, Perl, and Python.
Is this the first thing we want people to read about YAML. That it's an
alternative to SOAP? That's aiming pretty low. And does talk about
"anonymous nodes" really belong here?
How about using the abstract from the spec here.
