Ideas About What We Should Do:
Document & published
Working like ALWIG, i.e., people should bring in patterns for review to m
eetings (or submit to include on web-site) and latter we may formalize the de
scription for publication.
E-mail discussion group will be open, but unannounced for now.
We'll look at both design- & code-level patterns.
- Ada 95 programming idioms
- Patterns. Particularly addressing real-time.
What's a good example of a pattern? We asked everyone to su
bmit patterns via E-mail, which we'll post on our web page.
We'll set up a videoconference meetings at 2 sites (East &a
mp; West Coast) so people don't have to travel cross-country. What about E
urope? Asia? Do we have sufficient interest in either area at this time to s
etup transcontinental videoconference?
We'll start out as subgroup of Re-use.
Ed Colbert (firstname.lastname@example.org) was voted in as chair of working group
Joe Tallet (email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org) volunteered to be secretary & will take over the web-page management.
Brad Balfour will set up E-mail list on ACM and will send out announcement to all attendees of this meeting.
We'll tentatively plan a meeting in ~2-3 months.
