- I think we could do distributions that are referred with 1.0-like numbers instead of dates(03282005)-thingy. It would be more clear
OK sounds fine. What should we start at? 0.7 perhaps? I don't think we're quite at 1.0 yet.
- If we would have a distribution plan (ex : a release every 6 months) the new features added would appear more clearly and the progress would be more visible.
- If we were making news when a new version is released, the people would be thinking that Xith' core isn't dead
Yes that is a good idea. Can you (or someone else) help out with the PR stuff?
- I don't like the TextureLoader and TextureLoader2 thing.. think about the class name that should be easily understable : maybe we could rename both to TextureLoader, and put them in two different packages, indicating clearly that ones use com.sun.* classes and another java.* classes.
TexutureLoader is deprecated, people should move to TextureLoader2 (including myself). Eventually TextureLoader will be removed - probably before 1.0
- Maybe we should do a wish-list for next versions ?
If you like, of course it is better if people are volunteering to actually implement the wishes
- Maybe we should make a database from projects that use Xith ? And then each project would have, say, a list of "requirements" that they need for the progress of their project, and we could assign people to these tasks ?
IssueZilla can be used for this I think - it is possible to link bugs and have them dependant on others, etc. There is a "Feature Request" option. E.g. the logging feature request. Again, it's obviously best when people are committed to creating features.
The Xith.org wiki can also be used for such things. Any registered user can edit most pages, if you want to edit the restricted ones (like the front page official documentation list etc.) just email me and I can set the nessesary permissions.
For my part, I will promise to review and commit patches that are submitted via IssueZilla within 14 days, hopefully less (depending on complexity, of course if I am away it will be longer). Just please follow whatever conventions are in place and don't make any formatting changes (as it makes doing a diff and compare quite hard).
