There was nothing in rozallin's proposal to stipulate that an entry in Code Catacombs had to be a particular minimum number of lines of code.

There was nothing in mine either, or my answer. I was simply pointing out that the distinction is fuzzy, and often the 'wrong' categorisation choice is made, based on the lack of firm criteria, and that I felt the choice was fairly arbitrary in the first place.

Note that rozallin used the term "polished", not "finished"

Actually, the exact phrase was "I have always regarded Code Catacombs as a place for finished polished code"...(unless my cut'n'paste is inserting random words again {g}) - hence my making the jokey point about code never being finished, which you kindly repeated.

As for the point about distinguishing between 'tentative' and 'tested' code, again I think this is extremely fuzzy, and why bother trying to make it? As you say, the Catacombs is an excellent place to maintain code - why not have it spend its whole life cycle there? At what point would somebody decide to 'move' their code from Craft to Catacombs? Would the node move? Or would we simply get duplicated code - an old version in Craft, and newer versions in Catacombs? All this could simply be replaced, as I said, with a "status" indicator, which (if were required) would be able to give a finer granularity than simply "tentative/tested".

Cheers, Ben.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
