Our 0.3 release has been out in the wild for a little while now. We
should begin planning for the next release of phylobase. Right now
the TODO file is a bit big and sprawling. First we should clear out
the completed items. Then add features to be implemented next.
To get the ball rolling, here is what I would like to see in the next
1. A working example in the vignette of a function. I'm willing to do
this and was considering a brownian trait simulator (because there
appears to be a shortage).
2. Automagical subsetting of phylo4d objects.
3. A final decision on how nodes will be referred to by other commands.
What does everyone think the best way to track and discuss these
issues? Via the mailing list? A chat-room or telephone conference?
Or by the R-forge issue tracker? Personally I'm interested in giving
the tracker a try, it would allow us to claim tasks and have
conversation about particular features/bugs. What do other people
Lastly, we've now transitioned to the r-forge mailing lists.
Development discussions should now be directed to:
