Hi all,

folks from the Anolis and ReSpec tools have been talking together in order to figure out a way to share the data for the bibliographical references and definition cross-references.

Thanks to that, there is now a shared repository, using a shared data format, as well as an HTTP API to get at the reference data.

All of that is now live, but neither tool has enabled using that just yet, but I would like to switch it on for ReSpec rather soon if possible given that it would speed things up lots.

Other tools are of course very much welcome to reuse the same data and service!

I won't bore you with the details here, you can read them at: http://webref.herokuapp.com/.

Feedback is welcome, especially if you have nagging doubts that this might not be done right.
