Subject RE: New "module" terminology: WAS: Extending the build system for modules
Date Mon, 19 Aug 2002 11:31:14 GMT
Blocks and modules are *not* the same.

Putting it very simple, blocks are a plug-in mechanism for Cocoon and the
modules concept is only a better cvs structure for Cocoon.
So modules is only about organizing things and can be done by simply
restructuring the cvs and change minor parts of the build system. So,
these modules are possible today.

Blocks in contrast need to be designed and implemented - it's not possible
today and has a different aim.

However, a module can later implement a block of course.

Looking at all these threads and mails, it seems to me that more energy is 
spend on giving things a name rather than implementing them.
