I'd like to simply suggest that there be discussion threads attached to each blog post, just as there are on the bukkit.org and most other sites with a blog. Being totally ignorant about... what is this forum software? Atlassian? Anyway, being ignorant about <whatever this forum's name is>, I'm not sure if it allows that, but if it does that would be great to have.
But since it doesn't exist yet, I'll just discuss the latest blog post here. I just wanted to ask: Are the two separate projects of API and implementation like Bukkit/CraftBukkit in such a way that they both work as API? For a while, until I found out that you were actually supposed to use bukkit.jar, I compiled my Bukkit plugins against craftbukkit.jar, and they worked perfectly fine. I personally think that it would both be simpler on plugin developers and possibly easier on Trident developers to keep everything in one project. That is, as long as you keep the license issues totally out of the way; we all know what happened to Bukkit because they didn't do that very well, and we as plugin developers are fortunate to still have the bukkit.jar API still available.
