digitalmars.D - Re: Let Go, Standard Library From Community

I can't really say if Phobos or Tango is better but do I think there
should be one standard library and that standard library should be
maintained by a community. Walter has done a good job with
Phobos but I think it's too much to have one person maintain both the reference
compiler and the entire standard library.

 Personally, I'm not familiar with tango, but the following is based on the  
 thought of
 1. one man's effort vs. a team's effort
 2. growing D code need only 1 base standard library.
 I don't think it's funny to switch from phobos to tango or switch tango  
 back to phobos.
 I think standard library should be provided by D community, I appreciate  
 Walter gave us phobos.
 We needed this babysitter. But now D community is growing bigger & bigger.  
 I'm wondering if Walter
 can put as much effort as he used to put on Phobos to compete with Tango.   
 And endless arguing of
 Phobos vs. Tango is somewhat meaningless & annoying.
 Once tangobos out, I hope standard DMD package would be released by tango  
 team & Walter, with Tango
 being the base default library. Users can use tangobos for legacy code.
