Other topics

  • Question on whether the ands and ors are case sensitive


  • Reviewed proposal on snippets (email: bug#1000)
  • 2 proposals, separate tag "snippet" or have an optional byte range in the file to represent a snippet
    • Snippet class is clearer
    • optional byte range is easier to implement
    • Is there any duplication in fields? Likely not since all the fields in the snippet should refer to the snippet code and not the file.
    • Consensus forming on a separate Snippet class/section - Kate will write up a proposal for changes to the spec.
    • Will look
  • Is the relationship between snippets and files one to many or many to many?
    • Seems like many to many, but the snippet is a byte range in a specific file, so it needs to be 1 file to many snippets

Future topics

  • Continue Snippets discussion - June 9
  • Joint meeting with Legal - June 16
  • Discuss proposal for package naming (e.g. Maven GAV), discuss best practices - June 25
