I should take some time to explain my problems.
They all come down to a single factor: time. I'm overflowed by all
the messages I should answer to, all the work real life requires etc.
And sometimes there happen a couple of excellent ideas, that lead to
huge threads that I don't have time to review completely. So they
remain pending until I come to them.
This is extremely bad, and I do not want to become a problem for
Autoconf. I would really love to find a peer for the Autoconf design
per se, as specific macros are less a problem.
I enjoy your ideas, but as I had some thoughts about them too, I want
to discuss with you, have them evolve, and finally implement them
together. But I do not want to make this before 2.58. So first of
all, I would like to make Autoconf and Bison releases, and then dive
into more experimental things for Autoconf.
An option would be a separate branch. I am not opposed to this idea.
This would give more freedom for experimentation, and make it easier
to "discuss" about code.
Still, I need help to flush the bug reports. Nothing serious will
happen before we flush a large part of them.
PS/ I never forgot autolib, I love it, but gnulib happened in the
meanwhile, and I never had the time to see whether that would be a
duplicate effort, whether we should merge things etc.
PS2/ Please, subscribe on Savannah. I don't have time to apply
other significant contributors' patches.
