,----[ Albert Chu <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> ] | Whoah! Why the sudden change in opinion? :-) `---- In the past, much of the tools were written by Bala and me. Guile Scheme is like a rapid application development tool for us. We can implement the tools and maintain them with very less effort. Much of our focus were on the driver and C APIs. If you notice, only the user interface and control-flow code is in Scheme.
But now, GNU FreeIPMI project has grown bigger and seeking wider adoption/contribution from the community. Most of our users are system administrators and system programmers who are C and perl/python hackers. We certainly want them too hack and contribute. So moving forward, all our code base will be in C language. "fish" will continue to exist as a high-level language binding - "scripting-interface". Routine maintenance tasks such as PEF email/SMS alerts, SEL to mysql log can be easily achieved through fish. After Guile gets python->scheme translator, users can seamlessly use Python scripting over fish. -- Anand Babu GPG Key ID: 0x62E15A31 Blog [http://ab.freeshell.org] The GNU Operating System [http://www.gnu.org] _______________________________________________ Freeipmi-devel mailing list Freeipmifirstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/freeipmi-devel
