Subject goals proposal: minimize public APIs and freeze API only after m2 "1.0 release"
Date Tue, 08 Jun 2004 01:33:58 GMT

One of small patch on m1 was rejected because of touching a public API.

The method wasn't used in the code, perhaps for a while. In one way
that's strange before a 1.0 release.

I propose as design goals for m2 to
- minimize the use of public methods and classes, and to make use of
package private wherever possible.
- allow for API freeze only after release of version 1.0.

This should be an early goal and early statement from the project,
allowing for more flexibility in the future.
