Subject [Invitation To Design Discussion] - The Shale Dialog Manager Feature
Date Tue, 22 Aug 2006 02:27:26 GMT
If you have tried out the dialog manager feature of Shale, you're probably
well aware that it has some limitations and bugs.  Indeed, I see improving
this as the most important thing to tackle next.  In reviewing the
outstanding bug reports, it looks like we will need to rearchitect the
current implementation.  That means now is a good opportunity to review the
requirements that the feature tries to meet, as well as evaluate a few
implementation approaches, before we tackle the code itself.

To that end, I've set up a wiki page[1] where we'll accumulate current
thinking.  Active discussion will occur on the developer mailing list, so if
you are interested you should follow the instructions[2] to subscribe.
(Don't worry about flooding your mailbox ... it is a low volume list, and
specifically does *not* include all of the Subversion commit and wiki update
messages).  So, here's your chance to participate in improving this design,
so you can make sure it meets *your* needs.

If you're subscribed only to the user list and post to the developer list
anyway, your messages are likely to be delayed in the moderator queue.
Plus, you'll be unlikely to see any replies since those will be showing up
only on the dev list.  If you want to participate, you really should
subscribe :-).

Links to outstanding bug reports related to this feature will provide a
useful starting point for contemplation:
