Issue #7549 has been updated by jonforums (Jon Forums).


@trans I find your comment distracting and entirely off-topic. Brian opened with "I would like to propose this **process** for making changes to Ruby" and said nothing about specific implementations. Start a new thread on ruby-talk if you want to discuss the pros/cons of Rubinius, but please stay on-point if you feel you've got something of value to add. This topic is too important to litter with tangential discussions.

Feature #7549: A Ruby Design Process

Matz,

At RubyConf 2012, I gave a talk about a design process for Ruby (http://www.confreaks.com/videos/1278-rubyconf2012-toward-a-design-for-ruby). So far, over 12,000 people have viewed that talk. I think it is reasonable to say that many people are concerned about and interested in a design process for Ruby.

On Monday, we had an IRC meeting of Ruby implementers. Most of the points in my proposal were discussed but I'm concerned that a lot of confusion remains.

I have written a post that describes a Ruby design process and hopefully clarifies points that people found confusing:

http://brixen.io/2012/12/11/a-ruby-design-process

I would like to propose this process for making changes to Ruby. I am going to put a summary of the process at http://rubyspec.org/design and ask for people who support the process to submit their signature. I'd like to request that you consider the response from the community for my proposal.

Thank you,
Brian
