That's a lot of versioning strategies to discuss.

I am curious to your bullet point on Implications of modifying the DSL Environment. What do you mean by environment in this context? When I think of environment I usually think of concerns that should be abstracted from the DSL such as data stores where changing them should not affect the DSL.

Nathan,

Yes, but a lot of them are really simple. Abandon ship == no versioning, for example.

Environment in this case refer to the naming convention, the order in which the are executed, how do you select what to execute, etc.

Nathan

Ah ok, that makes sense. Looking forward to the next chapter of the book!
