When can we expect to see TNP PR's?

Post by obelisk79 »

I see a lot of great activity in both linkstage and main github repos over the last few weeks.

While it might be a bit presumptuous on my part, I believe that TNP mitigation is probably one of the most anticipated features for this development cycle. I'm curious when we could reasonably expect to start seeing some PR's being made by @realthunder to the development branch?

There are huge code changes in upstream since my last topo naming PR. It'll take a while for me to merge those changes. And once ready, it will be pushed into a separate TopoNaming branch in the upstream for the public to test. I expect the first batch to be ready in a few weeks. But, it'll take a much longer time for all the bits and pieces to be in place before the end user can get the full benefit of the new topo naming.

@realthunder is there any orientation you can provide in regards to what upstream could do to lessen the amount of work you have to do? For example, is there any part of the source code you recommend to avoid modifying (as best as possible) while TNP development/merge is ongoing ?

Realthunder thanks for the candid response, and your work. I know this feature is quite anticipated and those of us who try to provide support and guidance both here on the forums and in chat spend a lot of time teaching people about TNP and how to avoid it.

This goes without saying.
Realthunder was and is one of those people as well.
