I wonder whether there are any unmigrated Mainsoft modules !!!=20
We ll have bunch f TODOs and lots of testing to be done.
For now, expect to see more activity on the compiler side of things. =
lots of periods of inactivity is quite expected.
Remember there is always silence before storm ;-)

First I'm trying to kill as much bugs as detected by our nunit tests =

things may be broken).
Rob could you run the mainsoft suite and post the detailed results, so =
we can plan on dividing the work load. The only part I wouldn't touch =
now is the late-binding support, because most of it's overload selection=20=
code have to be duplicated inside mbas.
I'm happy to announce that we will have the help of another brazilian: =
Paulo Viegas. Soon he will be helping me organize the attack.

Seems like Jambunathan is getting inside the compiler because he reassigned=
to himself a bugzilla case that deals with the preprocessing directives=20
(#Const) so he is probably delving into the tokenizer (mb-tokenizer.cs) =
now. Anirban is squashing long-standing bugs and omissions in the =

Maybe. But I think that if you map what is wrong and missing, them we =
reach each other to give everyone a piece of the action.
>Can I hack the namespace without doing things already being done at =
If you want to implement (or migrate Mainsoft code) to mostly unimplemented=
modules just choose one and announce your intention here in the list, if =
one yell at you in 24 hours proceed (don't forget that Anirban and=20
Jambunathan work in India, roughly half-a-day away in the clock) .
Have fun my friend,
