Project Coin: The Call for Proposals Phase is Over!

Update: Added links to proposal for switch for all types and simple expressions and a link to a revised method chaining proposal.

Project Coin's call for proposals phase is now over! Thirty four days long, the proposal period included nearly 70 proposals being sent to the mailing list, 19 coming in over the last two days, and over 1100 messages on the list discussing those proposals and related topics. With the flurry of pre-deadline activity over, the more deliberative task of finishing reviewing and evaluating the proposals awaits. Including several sent in a few hours after deadline, the proposals received since week four are:

The figure below graphs when proposals were received; nothing like an impending deadline to focus the mind!

Project Coin Proposal Submissions

Sometime after the next for further consideration cut is made, I'll post some thoughts on and reaction to the call for proposals phase as a whole. This will not include a detailed analysis of why each proposal was or was not chosen; however, there will be discussion of common aspects of proposals that led them to be selected or not.

Comments:

Hmm, I see someone submitted an operator overloading proposal. While I'm not sure that annotations are the best way to indicate it, I do think operator overloading is a feature which should be added, so it's nice to see it there.

Is there a wiki (or similar) that consolidates the proposals that are due for consideration - poring through the dev mailing list is not very efficient...
