doc4 is an interesting project, but it's led by Mandriva employees and they didn't ask for help on this experimental project, and until recently I thought the project was dead. I'm not against some form of collaboration but I don't see how it could take place. Both projects goals are not totally identical, or at least mageia-app-db's goals are whereas doc4's goal are not totally clear to me. I'm not considering a total merge because I don't see of to lead this project for mageia without having control on the code and database schema.
