Yesterday in IRC Kacper and I chatted a bit about planning, particularly as it applies to development of yt 3.0. Planning in this case serves two purposes -- to make others aware of who is doing what, and to solicit feedback on design decisions that might affect people. After going back and forth, it seems like a combination of wiki pages and issues would be good places to have planning documents and ideas stored. Nathan also brought up in IRC that while many people may be interested in what's going on, it seems as though the changes in 3.0 are probably too invasive or not ready yet for general use. That's sort of true, but things are stabilizing. I'm not going to include a status update here, but I will once it has settled down a bit.
I've created two wiki pages:
* https://bitbucket.org/yt_analysis/yt/wiki/GoalsFor30 (almost verbatim from the google doc we collaboratively created a few months ago) * https://bitbucket.org/yt_analysis/yt/wiki/PlanFor30 (an update from my earlier email, including a somewhat revised timeline)
I'd really like to request that if you would like to update these pages, that you do so. You can use either the web interface or clone and edit. The wiki could also be a good place to record decisions made here on the mailing list about design aspects -- as an example, the other thread about coordinate systems. If somebody wants to take on fixing up the wiki as a project, that would be awesome as well.
