Subject Re: OODT project added to CodeMaps

Hey Guys,

I had a chance to talk to Sean Kelly and magicaltrout yesterday and got
some really helpful feedback from them. Below is the quick summary of the
chat and also attached is the IRC chat log.

*Summary:*
-------------------------------------
- Both Sean and Magicaltrout were excited about the site and liked many of
the features

- Sean liked the different options to Sign In and suggested support for
OpenID and Stackoverflow

- The code/javadoc part seemed interesting to both. A great suggestion
which came up was; being able to attach quick notes to the source code
itself.
"I believe annotating the code directly and in a visual distributed
environment is far better than in our usual mailing list. When we discuss
bugs, features, improvements in the mailing list or a chat room, we're
often having to re-assemble the context of the code mentally f*rom snippets
in quoted sections" *
This is in our todos and should be in one of our next releases.

- The code tab did have some issues with formatting causing some scrolling
issues with the latest Lion OSX and larger screen resolutions which we will
be fixed soon.

- Both of them thought being able to create UML like diagrams online is a
really helpful resource and will be particularly useful while discussing
refactoring apart from other documentation.

- The visual exploration is in early alpha and we need to do a better job
tagging it as such. Magicaltrout faced some drawing bugs at higher
resolutions which we will be working on.
-------------------------------------

We are working to improve all the different aspects of the website. I would
really like to hear more from all of you. I'll be available on the #OODT
group on IRC chat under name "abhi16".

Thanks,
Abhishek
