Yes, we need to make this more clear. I just wasn’t sure how to phrase it so that nobody gets mislead into believing that if they propose a project and implement it, it’ll get integrated into fastai. Please help me to refine that section of the main post in Dev Projects Index.
My thinking is this: don’t wait for anybody’s approval and go ahead and propose the project, link to it, discuss, coordinate and implement the project. And then it’ll either get integrated into fastai or it can live some other github repository and accessible to those who want it. We can make a dedicated index of projects generated “under” fastai but which for one reason or another couldn’t be made part of the fastai core.
If however you’d only want to invest your energy if your contribution is to be accepted into fastai, you will need to “secure” such agreement with Sylvain and Jeremy. But my feeling is that even if that were to happen it’d still give you no guarantee that your code will get integrated at the end.
The key is to communicate very clearly that there is no obligation here. At the same time anybody is welcome to use this space to brainstorm and create great things and find collaborators to do so.
How does that sound?
I’ll wait for your response before creating a thread in the dev projects category.
That’s said, if you feel you are in agreement, go ahead and do it.
