MondrianPaintings is a package belonging to the Mondrian repository
that contains few classes apparently to compute cycles, render a
distribution map, and render some views related to Flair.
There is a number of problems with this package:
- It contains too few tests. Among the 9 test run, 4 raise an error.
Apparently CollectionExtensions is required, which belongs to Moose.
Mondrian cannot depends on Moose. Maybe CollectionExtensions may be
moved into a standalone package for which both Mondrian and Moose can
- MOSmalltalkPaintings>>viewWAPackageHierarchy depends on WAPackage
which is not present in Mondrian and in a Dev image
What should we do with this package? We could move it to Moose, but
identifying cycles is an interesting feature that go beyond Moose. As
far as a I can see, making CollectionExtensions an independent package
looks the best compromise.
