Unless I’ve somehow missed something that I’ve been actively watching for, there is still a fairly vocal segment of the community (of which I am a part) that is at best unconvinced that syntax based on significant indentation is anything but a massive step backwards. The oft promised public discussion and feedback gathering about this has never materialized (there’s also never been a SIP proposal thread for this, which is passing strange considering how big of an impact this has on the language), in favor of statements which presume that this is simply The Way It Will Be or “You’ll like it, if you give it a chance” (I did, and it was just as bad as it ever was in Python).
Because of these statements, it’s unlikely that if the promised opportunity to give feedback ever materializes, that there will be confidence that the feedback provided will be taken seriously - aside from the perception that the decision is already made, even if we are heard there simply isn’t time to walk back the current decision, given the published timelines.
If it’s going to be done by fiat, we’ll have to learn to live with it or forgo Scala 3, we literally have no other option but forking the language (which is prohibitively expensive), but it would be nice if we could get the courtesy of acknowledgment that this process is a polite fiction. Aside from the utility in managing expectations, it would be nice to have closure on this matter.
