[REBOL] Re: Language Popularity & Network Effects; Ruby & Mongrel

From: btiffin::rogers::com at: 21-Nov-2007 23:18

Tim; Discussions on this very issue are in progress. The user.r topic of interest right now is Programming in the Large. That for me includes libraries; trusted libraries. I hope to have my head around a secure Web of Trust sequence soon, (the whole OpenPGP thing) and getting it started if it's not too much grief. That will give us rebols a digital signature and a bank of keys to verify such. It is a little bit of a catch-22. So many features that are visible libraries for most scripters are a one or two-liner built-in for REBOL. But there are libraries we do need and those should be built and then propagated in a well defined and well advertised way. All action? Hmmm, action. :) I was trying not to mention REBOL/3 in this, but even R3 will not be the panacea for library management. That will take the community and some "follow the leader" imho.
