I would like to work (on the weekends, so as not to intefere w/
<day-job>) on preparation and release of Guile 1.8.9, targeted
for the ides of April (more or less).

Guile 1.8.x users: What changes do you want to see in 1.8.9?

Guile maintainers: Any tips (process, content, interop, etc)
most welcome!

Please forward this RFC widely.  (I don't want to spam lists
that i don't subscribe to, personally, but those who straddle
feel free. :-D)

Hello ttn-
Guile 1.8.x was rather portable. So my only suggestion is to
keep it portable.

Hi,

I was not aware that Guile 1.8 was still "officially" maintained. What is the current status/policy about it?

 I'm not sure is appropriate to ask  but it would be nice if MinGW (both 32 and 64 bit) could be supported and to have it parallel installable with Guile 2 (and Guile 3).

Best regards,
Max

   keep it portable.

Good idea.  Are there any specific platforms you're interested
in?  Are there any specific regressions in portability you're
interested in avoiding?

   I was not aware that Guile 1.8 was still "officially"
   maintained. What is the current status/policy about it?

I believe the maintainers have stopped supporting Guile 1.8.x
for a while now.  I'm not an official maintainer, just someone
who has write privs for the repo.  I suppose it would be good to
hear from the official maintainers before proceeding, so as to
avoid any surprises, but my gut feel is that they're pretty
relaxed about anything that does not interfere w/ the cutting
edge stuff they do.

   I'm not sure is appropriate to ask but it would be nice if
   MinGW (both 32 and 64 bit) could be supported and to have it
   parallel installable with Guile 2 (and Guile 3).

I think it's always appropriate to express "it would be nice"
thoughts.  What can it hurt?

That said, i'm not familiar w/ MinGW, so i will rely on
community feedback to guide me.  As long as MinGW support does
not impede GNU/Linux functionality, i think we'll be fine...
