The developers plan to do Jython 2.2.
It should include the new CPython 2.2
features, maybe new Java/Jython integration
improvements, especially wrt to import.
About when? no concrete answer to give,
it's up to developers' (time) disponibility.
More working developers are there, the sooner
it will be.
Contributions are always welcome :-).
i) bugfixes are always a good thing, and a good
way to start contributing.
ii) the design of the implementation of
complex features should probably
be discussed before on jython-dev.
iii) some rework could be required on a
patch before it is accepted.
iv) it may happen that a patch (especially
for new features or non critical bugs) is
"rejected" because it would be better
- on the long run -
to refactor a part of the codebase than
simply patch it. Either the proponent
does the refactoring after discussion, or he
should accept that the functionality/fix
will be incorparted only when someone
else has time to do the refactoring.
There are exceptions but Entropy Kills.
