  • my top priorities are usually small, easy to integrate, and active development. [...] I'd rather have an active community, even if I have to keep up with API changes.

    Doesn't that conflict with "small"? If a module is small, there isn't much room for development, is there? (I'm thinking of the "Tiny" modules, but maybe you have something else in mind). It seems that usually when modules are actively developed, they become less and less small...

    • Small is relative to the size of the problem, and something can be way too small. I'd say DateTime is small, in that I intentionally left as much to other modules as possible (formatting, parsing, other calendars, events, etc.) But it's still got a lot of stuff in it.

      Maybe instead of small I should say "focused on a few well-defined tasks".
