QuoteWe already have an FDM stream that is being pitched by Cuch, so that is something that can perhaps be a standalone "tent".As well as MC101 (and MC102 in the next few days).Someone has to begin somewhere so let's take my FDM framework and let people experiment. I would be the architect, someone has to do it and I don't like the word 'consensus'; it reminds me of politics. No one is happy and you get a half-baked solution.Design by commttee is a killer; imo each project should have one owner/chief designer, e.g. FinnancialAlex. For example, I could add some of my code to hisarchitecture he has the last say; of course, it is also a bit of give and take.Decide on an architecture and stick to it if it satisfies the wishes of users. For both FDM and MC I have such a solution. They are based on domain architectures from a different s/w life and I think they are flexible enough to support new features.One issue I need to mention is the focus on coding/syntax issues while software design is the driver of this imo standard software project. Tbe only difference is that it lives on internet. It's not so difficult, technically.As we say in Dutch 'knoop doorhakken' (cut the chord) and get on with it. Don't be afraid to make a mistake in design. There's always plan B. (for me A == OOP solution, B == Boos solution, C == ...).What is important is that members here quantity their reasons for a decision; e.g. just saying you don't like OO is no good enough; tell why and give a better solution. The nice thing about math is that we don' have endless discussions on whether something is right or wrong.
