docs/project/core_inclusion.pod - Core Inclusion


This document address questions we will consider when deciding whether or not to move a piece of code into core.


Occasionally useful bits of code will arise that someone thinks should be made core components of Parrot. This document lists some of the questions we'll consider when deciding whether this is a good idea.


When considering whether to add code to Parrot, we'll ask ourselves and the developer(s) the following questions, in approximate order of importance. This is not an exhaustive list as much as a guide to help us make sure we think through the implications of adopting and supporting a new core component.
