Feature Request

Hi all,

I wanted to pass a long two features that I wished existed.

I think it would be nice if every block in GRC came with a comment
field. A
field for text that does nothing but allow users to add notes to help
others understand they’re thinking when they set-up the parameters of
the
block. It could be thought of as a user definable documentation section.

The second was a ‘comment through’ option. This comments out the block
and
passes data through it to the next block. Saves having to mess with
wires
between blocks that are commented out.

v/r,
Rich

Rich,

GRC has the worst ratio of people committing code (Seth is one of them)
to importance of the project. There is even an entire wiki page with a
GRC wishlist:
http://gnuradio.org/redmine/projects/gnuradio/wiki/GRCroadmap

…and Sebastian (our main GRC guy) tracks even more stuff on the issue
tracker. There will be a GRC Working Group call soon. If you (or anyone
else) would like to contribute, you are very welcome.

Otherwise, GRC feature requests will fall under the bus (besides, it’s
hard to come up with new requests – most people want the same stuff,
but no one wants to write it).

If you’re interested, tell us about it, and keep your eyes open for the
next WG call.

Sebastian,

Now that the “issue” is on the issue tracker, how long does it usually
take
for that to make it into the distributed version of gnu radio? What has
to
happen before then? I’m curious.

v/r,
Rich

Martin’s quite right, there is way more to be done, than there is time
=)

In this case, however, I had the code pretty much done already for
another feature.

Rich,

We have two pages that address those questions. Easier than reproducing
the
answers here:

http://gnuradio.org/redmine/projects/gnuradio/wiki/Development#Dealing-with-the-GNU-Radio-Issue-Tracker

and

http://gnuradio.org/redmine/projects/gnuradio/wiki/Development#How-long-does-it-take-for-my-patch-to-become-part-of-GNU-Radio

And to add to that last link, also the available time from the developer
how would be implementing that feature. So it’ll depend on Sebastian
queuing algorithm.
