Here's an interesting tidbit from William Clinger's notes from the Scheme workshop at ICFP'98: REPOSITORY FOR PROPOSALS. 17 people wanted to discuss Alan Bawden's proposal for library support primitives, which had more to do with process than with technical changes to the language. Discussion led to a proposal to create a World-Wide Web repository for proposals in the form of requests for implementations (RFIs). Creating such a repository does not require any changes to the R*RS or IEEE standard, so the straw poll was amended to ask how many people thought this should be done. The straw poll was unanimously in favor. I was talking to Olin Shivers about his code, and his reply is the following. I don't think we'll have any problem getting the SCSH code freed. ------- Start of forwarded message ------- Date: Mon, 12 Oct 1998 23:27:27 -0400 Message-Id: <199810130327.XAA12478@shivers.ne.mediaone.net> From: Olin Shivers <email@example.com> To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Re: Is it just me... Reply-to: email@example.com [...] [...] I'm going to make a beta release for Guile 1.3 today. Great. I've been hacking a bunch of libraries for proposal as RFI's. I now have a string lib, the ccp lib, a list-processing lib, and the regexp stuff. I'll propose them all as RFI's as soon as I can. I have reference implementations for all of these, and I've put the code in the public domain. I'd love it if you picked them up as guile modules. -Olin ------- End of forwarded message -------
