Hmmm. You know what? Let's just have the roadmap discussion here.
I've removed the "[placeholder]" bit from the Subject line, but left
other threading metadata intact.
Originally, I had wanted to come back to the list with a beautiful,
shiny, detailed proposal with lots of justifications and subpoints and
whatnot. But the responses so far show that many people *already*
have ideas for 1.1. Therefore, it's probably better to figure out the
roadmap iteratively on this list (Greg Stein suggested the same in a
private mail). Sure, it may take longer, but everyone will have a
stake in the final result.
Here's what we've got so far. If I left anything out, it's only by
accident, please follow up with the missing item. I haven't attached
the names of the suggesters, since it's the suggestions themselves
we're interested in:
* l10n (also known as i18n or "that gettext thang")
* Locking (reserved checkouts)
* Issue 1093 and friends (diff-follows-copy-history, etc)
* Straighten out Java bindings
* Improved release procedures & scripts
* Full DeltaV compliance (called "pie in the sky" :-) )
* In-repos ACLs (may be intertwined with reserved checkouts work)
* True rename support, at least in the repository
* symlink support
* "What about plug-in client-side diffs?"
* Fix N specific bugs (many in issue tracker are already marked as
"1.1", though that set is not written in stone of course)
Let's not get down to actual voting or anything like that at this
point. And, let's not talk about dates just yet. Rather, let's start
with some questions:
Does anyone see anything on this list that looks hard or impossible,
given our API guidelines, for a 1.1 release?
Do we think anything on this list would definitely take more than
(say) six months to design and implement?
Are there other things you would like to see on this list?
(Even among items that everyone agrees are possible for 1.1, there
will probably have to be a winnowing process eventually. But let's
start by getting all the ideas on the table, then see what looks
All right, let's hear it!... :-)
