Re: Roadmap for 1.1 [placeholder]

This is not an official proposal from the Chicago guys, but here's a
hint about what's floating in our heads right now.

Mmmmm... java. Not important to me, but whatever floats your boat. :-)

Absolutely. Collabnet really wants (at a minimum) localized error
messages ASAP. Hence my enthusiasm for gettext support in 1.1. Expect
the Chicago guys to help out on this l18n stuff however we can.

Yah, not necessarily as important. Could be 1.1, or maybe not. There's
a lot of design to work out.

That would be awesome.

Fantastic. /me throws confetti.

Yah. Out in Chicago, this is the "really big" feature we're hoping to
propose for 1.1.

About a week ago, cmpilato and I dusted off the very old locking
proposal that a bunch of us wrote up at ApacheCon 2002. We worked it
out on a whiteboard together, and Mike had a bunch of interesting
comments, optimizations, and tweaks to make.

That proposal has a lot of hand-waving going on, and our hope was to
present a *concrete* version of it to the list real soon. We've just
been too busy with internal stuff lately.

Well, that's certaintly not going to be part of our 1.1 proposal, but
hey, it sounds fun enough for me to at least work on "after hours" with
you. :-)

The only other thing on our 1.1 checklist is 'make subcommands follow
copy history'. I've already started working on it, as you've seen in
other mails.
