00:38 Idiosyncrat ronsavage's investigations into ASF's have produced a number of potential minor fixes, ...
00:38 Idiosyncrat and these might pile up for Marpa::R2, since there will be no more releases unless a serious bug is discovered.
00:39 Idiosyncrat But it would be nice to get this minor fixes out in some sort of timely way also ...
00:39 Idiosyncrat one idea is to create a fork -- call it Marpa::R2D2.
00:40 Idiosyncrat Marpa::R2D2 would try to be stable, but not at the cost of avoiding minor fixes.
00:41 Idiosyncrat Marpa::R2D2 could also take advantage of less-stable status, and ditch the obsolete interfaces ...
00:41 Idiosyncrat which Marpa::R2 supports for backward compatibility.
00:42 Idiosyncrat Of Marpa::R2's 4 interfaces, 2 receive no or very little use, but clutter the codebase and the docs.
00:42 Idiosyncrat A third, the THIF, might also be removed, leaving only the SLIF.
00:44 Idiosyncrat I won't ever have time to work directly on Marpa::R2D2, but if the community wants it, I can help by participating in discussions.

22:33 Idiosyncrat Theory paper coming along slowly.
22:34 Idiosyncrat I am taking advantage of the slow pace to add readability features --
22:34 Idiosyncrat more section heading, hypertext cross-references in the PDF, ...
22:34 Idiosyncrat and indexes of theorems, definitions, and notation.
22:40 Idiosyncrat My next "limited" release of the new Theory paper will be of the same chapters as before.
22:41 Idiosyncrat Often in rewriting math, you need to revisit earlier portions and, when I hit the Leo chapter, that happened bigtime.
22:42 Idiosyncrat I hope this chapter on the Leo algorithm will open it up and bring it to a far wider audience, but it's not coming along easily.
