Full name (required): Jay Reynolds Freeman.
Location (optional): Palo Alto, California, USA.
Affiliation (optional): None.
Contact details (optional): Jay_Reynolds_Freeman@x
Statement of interest (not required if you registered for the
R6RS ratification or the 2009 Steering Committee election):
(I did register for R6RS ratification, but anyway ...)
I have developed and maintain an R5 Scheme implementations for
the Apple Macintosh ("Wraith Scheme"), and a not-quite R5
Scheme for the Apple iPad ("Pixie Scheme III"). (By "not quite",
I mean that Pixie Scheme III has no access to the underlying file
system on the iPad, as required by Apple for iPad apps.) I do
not presently plan to upgrade either of these applications beyond
the R5 standard, but since I have been developing shareware and
open-source Scheme implementations since 1988, I believe I have
a convincing case to be interested in the future of Scheme.
Vote (required): Abstain.
Rationale (optional): I participate in the vote mainly to express
continued interest in the development of Scheme; however, most of
the features added since R5 are of little personal interest to me,
and I am not particularly up to speed on their implementation
details. Thus I feel that I could not vote yes or no intelligently.
