Message Hello Michael!

That depends on what standards you are not following and why.

My position is that it would be best to add it in the same way as C#, C++,
and PHP are in the project. There are several reasons for this:
1. It would be simple to get Xenofarm to build it regularly.
2. Every developer would feel the need to keep it updated when making
changes to the core ArgoUML that affects the language parts.
3. We have not yet solved how internationalization are done for the modules.
Keeping it all together until solved makes it simpler for the person
actually solving the problem to get the whole picture.
4. It would be possible to move issues in issuezilla between the ada part
and the other parts while investigating what the problem is or what the best
solution is.
5. We have not yet solved how the modules are going to be documented i.e. if
they are to be documented as a chapter in the User Manual or in separate
documents. How will this work with context sensitive help? Where do the
modules plug in their part? How does it get there? Same reasoning as for
internationalization about keeping it all together.
6. You will have standards and tools already in place.

The drawbacks are:
1. Cumbersome for you to commit changes since you don't currently have a
developer role in the ArgoUML project.
2. The ArgoUML project cvs repository, issuezilla and web site is already
rather large. It is hard to get a grip on what it is.
3. If you don't like the standards and tools of ArgoUML you will have to
adapt.
