Carl, I know ;-) I just meant something different. As to your sentence above -
you took the right direction! I love it. The only one thing which bothers me is
licensing scheme, but I still hope you'll find satisfactory solution. Corporate
money is not problem, I am just scared of hobbyist level.
As for Rebol product releases. As I said - I had something else in my mind. The
problem is, that according to email I was replying to, it seems that once you
release new product, eg. /Command, you put in there the most up-to-date /Core.
And that's what I can see a little bit problematic. Let's say someone writes
script using function XY under new /Command, and it works. Then he/she migrates
his script into most recent /View and ouch, it doesn't work anymore. The person
is, however, using the most up-to-date versions of /Core, /View, /Command,
/Link, whatever. There should not be any difference imo. That's why my opinion
is, that base product (core) should be the same foundation thru all products,
and I offered two possible solutions - one core thru all products + dynamic
component system, or - once you release e.g. /Command containing some /Core
related changes, /View experimentals should be generated too ...
... the whole thing is related to one old thread - bug tracking mechanism,
features planned for upcoming releases, etc etc. What about putting /Express bug
database into some section on View desktop?
I hope you can understand my POV and don't find it offending anymore ... :-)
