digitalmars.D - Re: Let Go, Standard Library From Community

I can't really say if Phobos or Tango is better but do I think there should be one standard library and that standard library should be maintained by a community. Walter has done a good job with Phobos but I think it's too much to have one person maintain both the reference compiler and the entire standard library. Davidl Wrote:Personally, I'm not familiar with tango, but the following is based on the thought of 1. one man's effort vs. a team's effort 2. growing D code need only 1 base standard library. I don't think it's funny to switch from phobos to tango or switch tango back to phobos. I think standard library should be provided by D community, I appreciate Walter gave us phobos. We needed this babysitter. But now D community is growing bigger & bigger. I'm wondering if Walter can put as much effort as he used to put on Phobos to compete with Tango. And endless arguing of Phobos vs. Tango is somewhat meaningless & annoying. Once tangobos out, I hope standard DMD package would be released by tango team & Walter, with Tango being the base default library. Users can use tangobos for legacy code.
