This document proposes a division of [incr Tcl]'s source code into functional areas so that each area may be assigned to one or more maintainers.
[incr Tcl] shall be divided into the following 8 functional units (the seventh is the obsolete parts of the source tree, and the eighth is the shared part of the source tree), each to be assigned one or more maintainers:
Objects - generic/itcl_bicmds.c, generic/itcl_class.c, generic/itcl_methods.c, generic/itcl_objects.c, generic/itcl_parse.c, doc/body.n, doc/class.n, doc/configbody.n, tests/basic.test, tests/body.test, tests/info.test, tests/inherit.test, tests/interp.test, tests/methods.test, tests/protection.test,
Other Commands - generic/itcl_cmds.c, generic/itcl_ensemble.c, doc/code.n, doc/delete.n, doc/ensemble.n, doc/find.n, doc/local.n, doc/scope.n, tests/chain.test, tests/delete.test, tests/ensemble.test, tests/import.test, tests/local.test, tests/namespace.test, tests/scope.test
Mac Build+Support - mac/tclMacAppInit.c, mac/MW_ItclHeader.pch, mac/pkgIndex.tcl, mac/itclMacApplication.r, mac/itclMacLibrary.r, mac/itclMacResource.r, mac/itclMacTclCode.r, mac/itclStaticApplication.r
Unix Build+Support - unix/tclAppInit.c, configure.in (to move to unix/configure.in), aclocal.m4 (to move to unix/aclocal.m4 and gain pieces the poorly-named Itcl tcl.m4), Makefile.in (to move to unix/Makefile.in), itclConfig.sh.in (to move to unix/itclConfig.sh.in), pkgIndex.tcl.in (to move to unix/pkgIndex.tcl.in)
Windows Build+Support - win/dllEntryPoint.c, win/makefile.bc, win/makefile.vc, win/rc/itcl.rc
Other - generic/itcl_util.c, generic/itcl_linkage.c, doc/itclsh.1, library/itcl.tcl, tests/mkindex.itcl, tests/mkindex.test, tests/tclIndex
These files are all obsolete in one way or another, and will be removed as part of the migration process. They are listed here for completeness only.
- generic/itcl_obsolete.c, generic/itcl_migrate.c, doc/man.macros, doc/itcl_class.n, doc/itcl_info.n tests/defs, tests/old/AAA.test, tests/old/Bar.tcl, tests/old/BarFoo.tcl, tests/old/Baz.tcl, tests/old/Foo.tcl, tests/old/FooBar.tcl, tests/old/Geek.tcl, tests/old/Mongrel.tcl, tests/old/VirtualErr.tcl, tests/old/all, tests/old/basic.test, tests/old/inherit.test, tests/old/tclIndex, tests/old/testlib.tcl, tests/old/toaster.test, tests/old/uplevel.test, tests/old/upvar.test, tests/old/toasters/Appliance.tcl, tests/old/toasters/Hazard.tcl, tests/old/toasters/Outlet.tcl, tests/old/toasters/SmartToaster.tcl, tests/old/toasters/Toaster.tcl, tests/old/toasters/tclIndex, tests/old/toasters/usualway.tcl
The following files are shared by all of [incr Tcl]. Any maintainer may modify them as necessary to complete changes they are making to their portion of [incr Tcl]. Some of the following files define [incr Tcl]'s API and should be changed only in accordance with TCT approval.
- generic/itcl.h, generic/itclInt.h, generic/itcl.decls, generic/itclInt.decls, doc/itcl.n, doc/itclvars.n, tests/all, tests/all.tcl
The following files are generated, so they don't need maintainers.
- generic/itclDecls.h, generic/itclIntDecls.h, generic/itclStubInit.c, generic/itclStubLib.c, configure (moves to unix/configure, trailing configure.in)
