For those interested in this project, here are some more details in
addition to what is at http://wiki.tcl.tk/22182#pagetoc9f995713 to help
hone a good proposal.
Make sure you have installed and tried the basic Tk demo framework.
Consider this against other "out of box" experiences you have had with
other frameworks that you feel were very well done.
Tk's demos show the basics of Tk without assisting in any way with how
to make good code. They also lack more fancy views and features that
could be done simply with Tk. Some are shown in simple featurettes, but
lack a good composed demo bringing together many features.
In addition, a few simple games always delight and engage users.
A good proposal should acknowledge the state of Tk's demo system and
lacking breadth in comparison to other frameworks. It will explain what
features will be emphasized and in what way. Things like simple games
do not need to be coded from scratch - they can be adapted from existing
code (with appropriate license) and repurposed into the demo framework.
Consider the vast wealth of small examples and snippets on the wiki.
Take into consideration the above when developing your proposal.
Consider your own strengths and make realistic milestones for your work.
