Quote from: Ters on May 30, 2013, 09:04:20 PMThe trouble is that projects don't always start out with a clear goal, and those that do, often snowball or change focus.
Quote from: Ters on May 30, 2013, 09:04:20 PMBut do the developers want a bandwagon? Some (most? all?) projects are simply the occasional pastime of developers who like tinkering at something without any commitment.
Quote from: Ters on May 31, 2013, 05:49:19 AMI might not want such a thing, where I have to coordinate with others and feel that others are anxiously waiting for me.
Quote from: Max-Max on May 31, 2013, 07:25:36 PM1) It is easier to browse among the different projects.2) You can see how many people are involved.3) You can quickly see what the project is all about. If you have a similar idea you can join that team instead of working in secret to discover you have done almost the same work as someone else.
Quote from: Max-Max on May 31, 2013, 09:53:31 PMWe can never force someone to work in a sertain way, but as we do with the patches, there is a recommended way of announcing them.If we put up a sticky with a recommended template for projects, just as we have for patches. it is in the end up to the developer(s) to use it or not. What harm can it do?
Quote from: Ters on May 31, 2013, 09:34:28 PM[...]Maybe managing Simutrans developers is like herding cats. They come and go as they please, and do whatever they want when they want, for reasons they might not even know themselves.
Quote from: jamespetts on June 01, 2013, 12:32:10 AMIn that case, the cat is the far wiser animal, and we should do well to have more cats and fewer dogs, for their judgment can surely better be trusted.
Quote from: kierongreen on June 01, 2013, 10:27:59 AMAgreed with the move - any project where the implementation itself is being discussed, there has been substantial progress already, and it is at least considered should be in the larger projects board.
Quote from: Max-Max on May 30, 2013, 11:06:01 PMI think I disagree a little bit here. Simutrans have some unofficial leaders; the core development team that decides what is and what is not to be included in the main trunk.As a developer, I want my work to be recognised and as long I don't know if my idea will be included in the main trunk or not, there isn't much point in developing it. Sure I can make a patch but it will break at some point when the trunk moves on...
