I am actually glad to hear this. I am interested in talking with someone very seriously about doing this. I have a framework that is 90% complete (Type III and Type IV spiral aren't done. A few other things.)
I'm keeping this post short, so I am skipping some important details. Like, what I have now would have to be ported to C++, but that should be fast with porting software that is out there.
Can you hook up by email to discuss in more detail? And if I should be discussing with someone other than you, can you get me in touch with that person?
I was planning to start from the very beginning today and see what I can get done between now and January 7th.
I come at this from a Roadway Designer's standpoint, and you know we have different interests and needs than Surveyors. So should you and I discuss features, workflow, etc, together?
The first thing I need to do with get LibreCad to build on my machine. The second thing is get familiar with what the community expects of new developers. Even though I am starting today, it will be a while -- I don't know how long -- until I am actually developing new things.
