I'd like to know what the 'official' position regarding ObjC++ is now.
Anybody willing to clear up?
Sure, why not... Either, someone will submit a clean, safe patch and
it will be reviewed and OKed and it will be checked in, or that's
Since you seem to be an Apple employee (at least that's what I guess
from your mail address) can I asume that this is a political change by
Apple in this regard?
Isn't Apple no longer going to move ObjC++ to the trunk by itself and
leaves this task to 3rd party volunteers? Has Ziemowit Laski been
withdrawn from the project (he seems doing other stuff lately as one
can tell from the cvs list). So please tell me/us, if we are on our own
now doing the patch or if Ziemowit (or somebody else) will continue
I've added a pool to the wiki pages where you can register your vote.
If no patch is submitted, there is little point in
considering/contemplating/arguing what would happen. If such a patch
were submitted, it would have to go into mainline first anyway, if it
proves safe there and people want to propose a version of it for
4.0.x, then I think the RM would have to reevaluate it on its merits
and risks and the timing. I don't see the need for the RM to declare
at this point what a future decision would be. I suspect that if done
well, the RM would entertain allowing it in 4.0.[n+1]; but that is
thanks for clearing up.
P.S.: cc'ed to the GNUstep list just for informational purpose
[ assuming that list is still closed, since, you didn't say they
opened it ] Will you please stop doing that... It drives us nuts,
absolutely nuts. If it is now an open list, never mind...
well this seems to change from time to time ...
