digitalmars.D.announce - DIP 1030--Named Arguments--Final Review Begins

reply Mike Parker <aldacron gmail.com> writes:
The Final Review for DIP 1030, "Named Arguments", has begun.

The purpose of the Final Review is a last check to make sure 
everything is in good shape. Generally, we aren't looking for 
major revisions to the DIP unless someone notices something 
critical. This is a chance for any revisions made in the previous 
review round to be scrutinized. Even if no revisions were made, 
it's a final opportunity to catch any problems that may have been 
missed before.

Please discuss the features of the proposal (its merits, its 
implementation, peripheral topics, etc.) in the Discussion Thread 
and save all review feedback (critiques on the content of the 
DIP: what to change, how to improve it, etc.) for the Feedback 
Thread.

You can see the status of every active DIP here: https://github.com/dlang/DIPs/blob/master/DIPs/README.md As a rule, every DIP in that top table is going to go ahead unless a) the author explicitly asks me to stop or postpone the process or b) the author becomes unresponsive. You'll see there that 1030 is currently in Formal Assessment, meaning Walter and Atila are evaluating it. I emailed them a few days ago to kick it off, so we should hear a verdict in the next two or three weeks. And thanks for asking! You've made me realize I should start announcing when a Formal Assessment begins.

Thanks Mike, I’m very new to this game. Best, Cecil Ward.
