The discussion on Racket2 seems to have moved offlist to the RFC list on github (https://github.com/racket/racket2-rfcs/issues); are there other locations?
There is one question that I had back at the beginning of the process that I didn't manage to get clarity on, which is the rationale behind the whole thing. I've gone back through some of the email discussion and gone through all 4 pages of the issues lists and read everything that seemed relevant. The most apropos thing seems to be this: https://github.com/racket/racket2-rfcs/issues/105 but it still doesn't really speak to my question. My current understanding is that the rationale for the Racket2 effort looks something like this: "We, the core developers, many (all?) of whom are also academics with a lot of experience teaching Racket to new programmers, have noticed that parentheses and prefix notation are a stumbling block for many students. We would like to help the ideas of Racket spread into the larger community. Therefore, we want to produce Racket2, which will have all the power of Racket but will get rid of parens and use infix notation, which will be more familiar and intuitive to students. We also see this as a great time to improve existing elements of the language based on what we've learned since they were added, and potentially add new features." Is this in fact correct? Is there more specific discussion of it somewhere that I've missed? I don't want to make people retread the issue if it's already clearly laid out elsewhere. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Racket Users" group.
