We don't yet use the Roadmap feature of Trac.
In general everyone works on his/her favorite area.
We encourage developers to open tickets for the ideas but often people just implement features.
We release about once a week when we feel the project is stable enough.
An outline of where Padre is heading
- Make Padre a good replacement for Notepad++ by making it stable and having all the feature that are really useful in Notepad++
- Make Padre a good replacement of Multi-Edit and Ultra-Edit
- Cover the planned Features
- Provide integration with version control systems - at least SVN, SVK and Git.
- Provide integration with Bug tracking system - at least Bugzilla and Trac.
- Cooperative editing (at minimum we would like to let one person edit and the others watch)
- Provide a platform for application development (along with Strawberry Perl)
The Padre Developers can put here a list of items they are planning to work on. Better connect them to trac tickets...
I'd be glad if others helped with any of these task.
Aid for Padre developers
- IRC robot for trac updates
- Buildbot setup for continuous testing
- post commit hook to generate docs in HTML format
- Parrot and Perl 6 integration ( http://szabgab.com/blog/2008/12/1229032305.html )
To allow others to work safer on Padre:
- Code cleanup and adding (unit) tests ( #22 )
Stuff that beginners need
- Promoting the translations: TranslationIntro
- Perl 5 Debugger integration (while the corresponding grant proposal was postponed, I think having a debugger in Padre is very important) ( #11, http://news.perlfoundation.org/2008/11/2008q4_grant_proposal_perl_deb.html )
- Context sensitive help ( #96, #56, #58, #59 )
- Download and Installation, especially for Windows.
- Sample perl scripts + tutorial that comes with Padre
- First runner should get a sample Perl script with some directions on how to read more, or run it etc.
- Clean up the Calltips and add simple examples to the most important functions.
- "New Perl script" feature that will include use strict, use warnings and maybe some other skeleton code ( #21 )
- Run from Padre should be able to allow STDIN as well (maybe we should spawn a shell or cmd and run the perl script there as some other editors do) ( #110 )
- Remote editing ( #12 ) and remote running via ssh or telnet
- Catch common errors of beginners ( #52 )
