Seconded. Maybe I did not state it that way above, but actually I also
want the AFP to stay publication-like (and I viewed it like that until
now; if nothing else, to value the effort that is put into such entries).

I very much agree with that. AFP-entries have
the character of a publication (they are refereed
to some degree) and are attached to an author or authors.
While it is technically possible to amend the authorship
of an AFP-entry, it is a psychological hassle.I had an
instance of this last year where I had to make amendments
to an AFP-entry by Alexander and Tobias. What made this even
more complicated is that they also published their entry in JAR.
So I was in the quandary whether to make changes to their
development or not, having in the back in my mind that they
might have a complete different opinion how things should be
done than me (and my co-authors). In the end, my changes were
minimal, but still it was a huge hassle.
AFP-entries should stay publication-like things. They
should not be a place where things are under rapid development.
Maybe there could be a different AFP "branch" that is purely library
Concerning Tobias original mail (on small AFP entries): Strange how one
can forget mailing list discussions that were actually read with great
interest ;). What is the current state w.r.t. the discussion that
followed in 2010? IIRC, the points were roughly
- module name spaces
- visibility of syntax
- installing entries (+ dependencies; something like cabal for Haskell)
Is there any way in which non-developers (like me) could contribute to
anything of the above?
