Re: [eclipse-incubator-e4-dev] CSS walkthrough - Aug 20 at 11am EDT/ 5pm CEST

Hi Ralf,

These are great questions.

Since folks have already prepared slides, what I'd like to propose is that everyone presents, and we use these questions as part of the input to the discussion.

My guess is that we're going to need a few rounds of discussion on the topic of CSS.  My main goals of this initial call was "level setting" and the start at removing barriers to making concrete progress.  Your questions are exactly the kinds of things we should be discussing.

And agree, CSS should have its own page under e4.

Best Regards,

Ralf Sternberg <rsternberg@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

I had a discussion with Frank and we came across a couple of
architectural questions that are still unclear to us. As an example,
which roles will be involved in the development process - I guess the
person writing a style sheet is not necessarily a programmer - and the
like. I'd like to suggest that we try to clarify those higher-level
questions before we move on to actually evaluating technologies.

I added a wrap-up of our questions to my personal wiki page:

It's just a rough draft that might serve as a skeleton for the
discussion. By the way, I wonder: shouldn't we create a wiki page of its
own for the CSS topic?
