> Hi,
> a new project started to port the PDF library PDFtalk [1] to Smalltalk dialects without namespaces.
> There has been some interest in the past for such a port. Unfortunately, after the first excitement, I never heard of these attempts anymore, so that I think that they were abandoned. It would be interesting to hear why.
> If there is still interest in getting PDFtalk into your Smalltalk, here is the chance to help and participate. I will try to do the port in the open and document everything on the wiki [1], so that lurkers can follow and helpers can comment.
> A project page has been set up [2] and I started a log [3] where I record in detail what I am doing for porting the Values package.
> The port is done with code transformations generating the source for the target dialect. You can find some documentation about the approach here [4].
> All these pages need work, so comments will be appreciated.
> Happy hacking,
>                 Christian
