That could be its name though: “scala-nio”, plain and simple.
I am fine with scala-nio. Some questions:
- Do I rename just the git repo or the package too?
- What would be the new package and group-id be?
scala.nio.File? I imagine that is an acceptable inconvenience for users?
- Since we would publish under new group-id after renaming, do I restart semvar (i.e. start from v1.0.0) - currently better-files is at 2.17.x?
- What are the next steps?
A package id of
scala.nio will get us back to the problem of using a scala core namespace.
Is is mandatory that the group-id for platform libs should be changed?
Ideas that won’t have scala in the name:
Is there any update to the progress of this? Is better-files (renamed somehow) going to be the default file IO library in Scala, or are there different plans? I can’t see anything post Feb 2017.
