Dead Supporters,
I'm publishing a progress report for month August with detailed
timelog and brief description of undertakings performed each day. This
file also contains report for the previous iteration sponsored by
Professor Robert Strandh.
<https://common-lisp.net/project/mcclim/static/documents/status-reports.org>
The most important achievement was securing funds for a few months of
work with the `Bountysource` crowdfunding campaign. We've created some
bounties to attract new developers. `#clim` channel on `Freenode` is
active and we seem to regain the user base what results in interesting
discussions, knowledge sharing and increased awareness about the
project among non-clim users.
We have also gained valuable feedback about user expectations
regarding the further development and issues which are the most
inconvenient for them. We've added a new section on the website
<https://common-lisp.net/project/mcclim/involve> which addresses some
common questions and doubts and we have created a wiki on GitHub (not
very useful yet <https://github.com/robert-strandh/McCLIM/wiki>).
During this time we are constantly working on identifying and fixing
issues, cleaning up the code base and thinking about potential
improvements. Curious reader may consult the git repository log, IRC
log and read the logbook.
As a side note, I've exceeded time meant for this iteration by four
hours, but I'm treating it as my free time. Additionally people may
have noticed that I did some works on CLX not specifically related to
McCLIM – this development was done on my own time as well.
Also, to address a few questions regarding our agenda – our roadmap is
listed here: <https://common-lisp.net/project/mcclim/involve>. That
means among other things, that we are concentrated on finishing and
polishing the CLX backend and we are currently **not** working on any
other backends.
If you have any questions, doubts or suggestions – please contact me
either with email (daniel@turtleware.eu) or on IRC (my nick is
jackdaniel).
Sincerely yours,
Daniel Kochmański

* DONE Iteration 0 (150 h)
** summary
The first iteration was resolving around identifying problems and
cleaning up the code base. We've moved sources to their corresponding
directories, cleaned up system definition file, fixed dependency tree,
replaced big parts of code with a libraries like trivial-gray-stream
and opticl. Removed defunct backends (all except clx, beagle and
null).
We've also refreshed the website, mailing list and created the IRC
channel #clim. Some information on the social news (planet.lisp.org,
reddit.com, twitter.com) spawned interest in McCLIM and ensured us,
that there are people who are willing to use it and that it's a
worthwhile effort.
