v1 v2 7 7 Otherwise, some guidelines to keep in mind: 8 8 9 == The wiki and Tickets== 9 == The wiki == 10 10 11 11 No Discussion on the Wiki! Keep discussion on the mailing list and 12 12 use the wiki to document consensus and pros & cons. It is just fine 13 to have conflicting points of view in a ticket oron the wiki, but no 13 to have conflicting points of view on the wiki, but no 14 14 back-and-forth discussion (use the mailing list for that). Create 15 "pros" and "cons" sections in the ticket/wik. 15 "pros" and "cons" sections . 16 16 17 == ForTickets == 17 == Tickets == 18 18 19 For tickets, use EDIT rather than adding "comments". Link this ticket 20 with wiki pages or other tickets which are related, or for which this 21 is a counter-proposal. 19 We have been using tickets in the past to keep track of proposals, but that turned out to be rather cumbersome as there are many small issues. So now the status of each proposal is kept in the Haskell source file [http://darcs.haskell.org/haskell-prime-status/status.hs] which can be modified by committee members, and from which the wiki page [wiki:Status] is automatically generated. 22 20 23 Be sure to set the "component" field as "Proposal" and leave the Adopt 24 field alone. 21 == Creating a proposal from a discussion == 25 22 26 == Creating a Ticket from a Discussion == 27 28 So for instance, there's a proposal that we modify the comment syntax. 29 After some time for discussion on the list, whoever is agitating 30 (leading a discussion) should create a new ticket if s/he still 31 believes in the suggestion. The ticket should have 32 component:proposal. The pros are that it's going to be simpler for 33 students, more consistent with the block comment syntax, and easier to 34 implement in editors. The cons are that we lose a group of possible 35 operators, --> for instance, and this in turn may cause some code to 36 break. 37 38 Put your email address on the tickets so we know who to ask if we have 39 any questions. 40 41 To create a ticket, go to the wiki and log in. The user name is guest 42 and the password is haskell'. If you think you'll be doing a lot of 43 ticket work, email me for a guest account so that your name will 44 automatically appear on the changes. 23 It is the responsibility of the committee to keep track of proposals discussed on the mailing list. If your idea has not been made into a fully-fledged proposal, please notify a committee member and ask them to do so.
