I am stepping down as Chair of the C++ StdLib PMC.
So the question is: Does this project and community
elect a new Chair, or does it enter the Attic?
I'd be willing to chair if others are supportive
OK, so before I give you a +1, could you please outline what is your
Plan(TM) regarding resurrecting this project?
How are you going to do it, and, more specifically, what are you going to do?
1) I think the most important thing is grow the community
a. Let people know how important and STL is
b. Advocate for wider adoption/testing (See if we can get prebuilt
packages and clear instructions for how people can use/test STDCXX)
2) Evaluate and get feedback from you and others about how we can
improve the project (Communication, code review, growth opportunities.. etc)
3) From my $JOB I can advocate to help with code review, QA and ensuring
good contributions like what you've done before actually get committed
One thing I don't yet have a clear idea how to accomplish is C++11
support. A C++03 STL is far from dead, but we need a 2-4 year plan to
catch-up with others.
My guiding principle is :
Use, love and contribute back
We need to increase our userbase 1st to start this cycle
