Subject [text] Next steps.
Date Mon, 28 Nov 2016 22:44:42 GMT

I'm a tad curious what folks (along with Gary, Benedikt, and Bruno) think
the next steps are for text in the hopeful thought that we are eventually
heading towards a 1.0 release. Some thoughts that come to mind are:

(1) Go over lang with fine tooth comb and see what we think should move,
(2) Go through the Lothaire "Applied Combinatorics on Words" book (
and minimally implement some of the standard algorithms.
(3) Implement, from the Lothaire book, some of the more complex stuff:
heavier pattern matching, and/or natural language processing,
(4) Go straight for a release.

I'm less for (4) because I think there's probably some smaller bits of code
in lang that probably come over. I like the idea of (2) before heading out
the door. Regarding (3), I would have to do considerable reading to make
considerable headway here, which I'm not opposed to doing it would just
merely prolong getting to a 1.0 release if we predicated the release upon
my getting that done.

So, what do you guys think?
