Consensus on Language Features
« on: October 11, 2018, 08:20:27 am »
The title is almost the question (if it fits here):
How is consensus reached on new language features regarding freepascal?
Is there a suggestion box? And is there a discussion available regarding different topics (to understand pros and cons)?
Best to everyone.

Usually the developers list is a good place to start: people may have an idea for a feature that is already actively developed or already refused.
You can also enter feature requests in the bug tracker. Small features - preferably with a patch - are highly likely to be accepted if they make sense.
Larger features are always discussed on the developers list.
inline variables like in D10.3 are a bit like Brexit: if you are given the wrong information it sounds like a good idea. Every kid loves candy, but it makes you fat and your teeth will disappear.
