Somehow this never wound up making it to the list, so I'll try again.

Good news everyone, I've just finished putting together the base code for my
distrowatch parser. As you all probably know (because I think I already
mentioned this) it's written in Java, the reason I chose Java was because I
didn't know how to fetch files via http with any other language yet. Most of
you should be aware that Java is object oriented, so when I say I'm finished
writing the base code that more or less means that I have all the critical
parts written, but I only have only gotten a working sample output by
running the individual components with some temporary code to glue together
the ones that need it. I will be refining the code and then tying it
together with some sort of user interface, whether command line or

I would like to see what you all think of the output so far. Unfortunately
because the xml files I have it parse don't contain much information I don't
have much to work with either so improving that part of the program could
prove very difficult.
