To list members who are over joyed to see another XUL site coming up, you'll be disappointed.  Other than "borrowing" the name from the Mozilla technology, this site is not really about XUL.  It uses the absurd notion that any ui markup in xml is called XUL.  By its definition, XFORMS is XUL :) ?!  I won't drag you into the discussion on its mailing list about whether it should or can the use the term XUL (most messages on that list are on this topic).  You can check out the discussion at http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/forum.php?forum=xul-talk if you are interested.  

The site is a great resource for xml base rich UI technologies.  But you should not expect see XUL stuff there.
