[IPython-dev] Feature and scope creep in IPython
Wed Jan 16 13:32:08 CST 2013
We really need that core developers expend their time in few but well
As a user, and a beginner developer, I want to get more features
(probably is a tendency of all of us)... but we really need to
understand that our wishes are not good for the project as a whole. The
community of user and/or other developers can/have to develop *modular*
enhancements to fit their needs, but outside the main project...
We have a structure to do this kind of stuff... and this is because we
have a solid core...
So, we need that the core developers concentrate his efforts to maintain
this solid core and to get it even more solid, with the proper features.
Few but great features... defined by the current scope (that would be
great if it is explained in detail by core dev).
In this way, we can go further with stronger steps...
