Subject [Launcher] [Exec] Merge Proposal
Date Sun, 09 Jun 2013 20:03:56 GMT
Hi all,

Following an initial idea of Gary Gregory, I have written a small proposal
regarding the merge of Launcher and Exec.

If this idea gains enough momentum I shall devise a plan and continue with
the rest of the required work.

Please comment and vote for merge +1 or no merge -1.

Proposal to merge two existing Commons projects: Exec and Launcher


The Commons ecosystem thrives with concise, well defined, fast growing and
dynamic sub projects.

The person-hours and interest the community devotes to each single project
can have a direct impact on the software and documentation quality that
each project yields.

With this in mind it is in the interest of all to achieve a perfect balance
between cohesion and identity for each sub project within Commons.

Merging Exec and Launcher will highly benefit both code bases and in turn,
its users.

[Reasons to merge]

- Very similar objectives, features and aims

- Simplification of the overall Commons project by reducing the number of
specific projects without compromising feature delivery

- The merged project will probably involve and capture attention of new

- Code share and total lines of code reduction

- General update of both project’s source code

[Reasons not to merge]

- Broadening the focus of each project

- The actual work of planning the merge, merging and documenting imply
person-hours that could be applied to more functional tasks
