Re: [Gmod-tripal-devel] Items for next Tripal dev call
I'm cc'ing the developer's mailing list in regards to your questions
for other interested groups. I have added a new page the Tripal
User's Guide which I believe answers your questions and others that
might come up for modules that are intended to be shared. You can
find it in the Table of Contents of the Users's Guide (At the
bottom), and here is a quick link to it:
The questions you ask are addressed on the bottom of that page in
the section "Use of 3rd Party Libraries and Module Dependencies".
Please let me know if this doesn't clarify those and if more info is

Depending on your plans for the next Tripal developer's call,
I have a few possible items:
- Tripal policy and thoughts on using (or not) 3rd party
libraries or tools in a Tripal module, especially if the
tool/library is required for the module to function.
- How commonly do groups find themselves writing Perl loaders
rather than using or developing loaders within Tripal?
- Revisit the need for download functionality (e.g. the
table results of a search, or full data for a batch of IDs).
The existing Drupal modules are way too slow, largely as a
result of limitations of PHP, Drupal, and Views.
