yesterday I put a question on the developer list on where to put a new
mini-library for statistics. Right now it is used only from the analysis
tools but it might also be used from other parts of the code. Hence I
suggested placement in gmxlib, or even directly in src. If no one object
I will do this later today.
More in general, we should decide on the future structure of the source
tree, do we want a src directory with dozens of subdirectories, or
should it be hierarchical. Do we move to one library or do we keep four
We should also document code recommendations. For instance, Berk stated
in another mail recently that we moved to the 4 space indentation etc.
We should put this information on the wiki, for everyone (including me)
Finally, if we are going to allow C++ code, then we should link
everything with a C++ compiler, and the configure.ac should be adapted.
We probably need to adapt header files as well (at least if they are
used from C++).
