Hi Simon, The report looks good. Just a thing about the ChangingIPD hack: actually it is still undecided whether it should be merged back to Trunk or not.
My main concern about that is that it will get in the way when implementing the new approach. I will basically have to start with reverting all the changes made for the hack. My idea was to actively maintain the branch in sync with the Trunk. Releases could then be made from the branch. But this may actually turn out to be more work than reverting all the changes in one go. Plus it has been mentioned to me that this may create difficulties for users who regularly take snapshots of the Trunk (the branch will always lag a little bit behind). Any opinion about this is welcome. Meanwhile, I’ll modify the status report. Thanks, Vincent Simon Pepping wrote: > The August report needs to be submitted by 16 August.
