Hello Everyone,

    I'm very confused. Unless I've been living in a vacuum (which is very
likely) I'm pretty sure no one has posted a specification for a DAS2 server
other than the RFCs? Have these been enumerated in priority order etc? What
will DAS 2 offer over DAS 1.0?

    I ask this because we have a very stable DAS library built into OmniGene
that we have leveraged at the Whitehead for about 2 years now. Changing a
server to be DAS 2 compliant will break our API or not?

    Also, I'd really like to see what people have been implementing or at
least designing? Will DAS 2.0 incorporate SO? LSID? Like the nature paper
said? Where is all this at etc?

                    Thanks for your attention!
