It seems like a lot of issues that get brought up in a variety of other topics center around wanting to have a universal format that does what each individual needs (options for WAYS of exporting into collada). That makes total sense. However, expecting the different vendors to cover everything might be a bit of a stretch. This then leads to individual contributions...
At the moment it seems like the only way of contributing is through posting stuff on another section of this forum. That works ok for smaller things (and exporters are relatively small projects...). However, using a patch submission system and/or having volunteer developers could greatly help in getting in all the desired options into the various exporters. Heck, a full blown Open Source project could be started. This could even be done in cooperation with Alias, Discreet et al so things stay more organized and such.
I for one would be interested in helping out with such efforts.
Who's with me!
