The data you sent us is great.
It allowed me to do some simple tests, and get familiar with the API.
It's looking good!

Does this mean that I could either now or very soon actually connect to your
demo server, via xml rpc?
The data you sent me was very useful. I have been able to run some small
preliminary tests, to understand how I am supposed to use the Drupal API.
Now that I know how it works, it is actually quite simple.
Using the API, I have been able to reproduce exactly the same xml call.
so, for the call itself, there is no problem.
For the reply, though, I run into some error.
I simulated the reply from the server by injecting the xml you gave me in the
The whole reply doesn't look like valid xml. I don't know the specs, but I
find it strange to have such a deep nesting (member within struct within
value within data within array within value within param...)
Are you sure that's valid?
In any case, when I injected the reply, the function supposed to parse the xml
returned the error message: Parse error. XML not well formed.
It is possible that I made a mistake myself, but I wanted to check with you.

Can you explain the parameters 27948569, 0, 3 to me?
Is that 3 questions starting from question 0 (i.e. 0, 1, 2) requested by user
with cookie 27948569?
From your pdf, page 19:
Method question info returns the information for the set of questions of
which identiﬁers are in [base id, base id + number). It returns rt request
too much ids if number is greater than MAX NUMBER IDS, rt ok otherwise.
