Re: [tools-pmc] FW: [cobol-dev] COBOL out of Interest

Heh, my fault then...

Last year when we went through this exercise, Bjorn was given the COBOL project to work with.  Somehow, just before we planned to have the review, they demonstrated renewed activity.

The PMC mailing list archive for 2008 seems to be inaccessible but   has the relevant email.

+1 - it's time

+1 from me. This comes up at every PMC call. John is their biggest supporter :). Is it time, now, John?

Hello all,

haven't heard of you for a long time! Therefore I come to the
conclusion, that you aren't interested in the Cobol-IDE any longer. No
wonder, because there has never been a working version of this software
since I joined the mailing list  in 2003. The original programmers
either did not do what they promised or did so and now hide their code
somewhere. Also the commiters had a hard time in finding something to
offer to the public. Some advisers influenced the project, which might
be a reason for what we have now: nothing works here with COBOL and
Eclipse. On the other hand I know of and have heard of
COBOL-Eclipse-plugins in operation. Starting from the scratch was never
effectively possible here, because there was no initial version to start
with. Maybe the problem lies in the column orientation of a widely used
COBOL dialect. I myself did my work and have a working COBOL editor and
navigator now

and I'd be interested in a feedback, if you take a look at it.
