Hi Gilles,

My guess is that we experiencing a mix folks being busy and a lack of fresh
blood in Commons. I know I am busy ATM! I bet you must feel frustrated and
I am sorry about that. It does not help that there are different opinions
on how to organize items or not between Commons components. Speaking
personally, I do not have the bandwidth ATM to dig in Commons Math and
related code within and without that component. I hope others can chip in
in keeping this part of our community active.

IMO, it would make sense that the next release of Commons
Math (v4.0) depend on "Commons Numbers" (v1.0 ?) and
Commons RNG (v1.1).

Could people who volunteered for moving/refactoring the
codes provide some status information and expected roadmap
for getting to a state where release of the existing modules
could be considered?
* commons-numbers-core
   - Which other classes (namely from "o.a.c.math4.utils")
     yet to add?
* commons-numbers-complex
   - Add "Complex" solvers (?)
* commons-numbers-fraction
   - Add "ContinuedFraction" (?)
* commons-numbers-quaternion

The purpose is of course to drop the corresponding CM packages.

New modules to consider for Commons Numbers:
* commons-numbers-combinatorics
* commons-numbers-jdkmath (from "o.a.c.m.util.FastMath")
   - Or drop "FastMath" altogether?
* commons-numbers-arrays (from "o.a.c.m.util.MathArrays")
* commons-numbers-primes (from "o.a.c.m.primes")
Please comment.

Also, what is status of "Commons SigProc"?
If this new component would be released, then I guess that we
could safely drop package "o.a.c.math4.filter".


P.S. My last post about the CM's JIRA backlog did not elicit
    much reaction.

You will have to pardon me Gilles, as I have, much like Gary, have been
quite busy of late. I suppose the main question here should be: of the 101
open, in-progress, or reopened, jiras, which most need to be in 4.0. Can we
sort them into two categories, 4.0 and 4.X? Do you mind if I try to make
some headway in this area? I will continue to read through the issues to
see wha

I'd like to know what the PMC members think
    of that situation. Is the status quo (i.e. the image of CM
    getting worse with each reported bug) satisfactory for the
    PMC? [Gary, please include in the report a paragraph about
    the state of the matter.]
