Problem is we never really discussed what this MondrianPaintings is
about. I understand it as a bunch of applications based on Mondrian,
more complex than basic stuff, and independent of Moose.
But it still a bit in the gray.
There is a number of problems with this package:
- It contains too few tests. Among the 9 test run, 4 raise an
error. Apparently CollectionExtensions is required, which belongs to
Moose. Mondrian cannot depends on Moose. Maybe CollectionExtensions
may be moved into a standalone package for which both Mondrian and
Moose can depend on.
- MOSmalltalkPaintings>>viewWAPackageHierarchy depends on
which is not present in Mondrian and in a Dev image
yes this is viz for seaside packages
What should we do with this package? We could move it to Moose, but
identifying cycles is an interesting feature that go beyond Moose.
As far as a I can see, making CollectionExtensions an independent
package looks the best compromise.
Actually this package does not contain any cycle identification algo
(there are in MooseAlgos and DSM for now), it's just stand-alone
visualizations in which you can put data.
I agree that CollectionExtensions should have its own project.
