Software Engineering: A Few New Projects
On the Pylons mailing list:
From Mike Orr:My reply:
I've added a page to the Pylons Cookbook listing packages Pylons users would like to see written. Feel free to add stuff or take something on.
I'd really like to have a piece of software that helps me decide how a feature should work when I have to make those billions of little tiny "how should this feature work?" decisions every day. I think I'll start a new project on SourceForge called SilverBullet.Happy hacking!
I'd also like to have a tool that's the opposite of diff, called join. For instance, you could use join to do things like merge TurboGears and Pylons, Emacs and Vi, Dojo and Mochikit, Linux and BSD, etc.
I'd like a static code analysis tool that analyzes my requirements and a given library and tells me if a) I should use the library b) I should rewrite the library because it's poorly written c) I should find another library that actually does what I want.
Last of all, I want a replacement for X windows!
