A few days ago, we released an update to the "Log Validator" tool, 
bringing its version number to 0.5. Almost a symbolic milestone, and a 
good opportunity to think of its future.

For those not familiar yet with this tool, the Log Validator is a Web 
Server log analysis tool, with modules such as HTML or CSS validation. 
Use it on your Web server, and it can give you a list of the most 
popular documents that need some attention. Feed it a flat list of 
URLs, and you have a simple, efficient batch validation tool.


The LogValidator is already, I hope, a useful tool, but I am certain we 
could make it even more useful for Wed developers, webmasters, etc. I 
know that some of the people on this list have been using it, and I was 
wondering if you would have any kind of features that you would really 
like included in a future version, or something in the way it works you 
think makes it less usable than it should be.

I am also looking for (success, or otherwise) stories from people using 
this software.

At W3C, for example, where the very large site is edited by many 
people, often by hand, we use the log validator to send the team a 
weekly mail with the most popular invalid documents on the whole site. 
We also plugged it into our publishing system, so that people receive 
an e-mail if a document they have published or modified during the week 
is invalid. That, and a few other uses...

How do /you/ use it? How would you like to use it?

I would really be interested in hearing your stories and wishes.
And of course, if you want to spread the word about the tool and the 
call for feedback, that would be, obviously, much appreciated.

Thank you,
