Subject RE: [collections] PATCH: Add CollectionContainsPredicate...
Date Fri, 11 Mar 2005 00:24:39 GMT
Stephen,

Has there been any thought to creating an optional Commons Collections
"Contrib" project?  If users want to use it, they can.  If not, they can
stick to the core collections classes (which we could keep small).  Sorry if
this has already been addressed, but I have not been monitoring this list
for a while.  

James

Two things here, firstly I have been the main maintainer of [collections] 
for a while, but have been focussed on JodaTime recently.

Secondly, [collections] faces a size problem. [collections] could accept 
many good ideas (there are hundreds of good possibilities for predicates, 
and I've already rejected four or five), and this is another good idea. 
However, there has to be a scope limit and boundary at some point.

This refusal to add too much more to [collections] is due to
- the lack of active maintainers
- the size of the resulting jar file
- the negative reaction to [collections] 3.0

Which is a long way of saying, Good Idea, but -1 on adding it to 
[collections].

Stephen

Matthew,

Ok, I was just getting worried there.  Usually the developers are somewhat
quick to respond.  I at least expected something like "good idea" or "that's
stupid." :-)

I'd consider adding your patch to Bugzilla as an enhancement.

Nobody has responded to your message for 2 days -- but that definitely
doesn't mean that nobody is monitoring [collections].  It just means that
nobody has had the time to respond.
