When writing papers such as this one https://github.com/geneura-papers/2015-Evostar/blob/b9474f66cd45aee316136831c4a9b4acaef4e89f/GPbot/GPbot-evostar2015.tex, we use LaTeX comments for, well, commenting on the paper itself and making suggestion. There are a couple of issues
- When issues are resolved, we erase the comments by hand. Except when we don't, which is often.
- When we submit the paper, we also have to erase all comments by hand. Sometimes we've submitted sources to places that allow downloading with all our comments, including in-jokes.
- We have no way to know unresolved issues or, in some cases, who's created it. We usually sign them, but sometimes we forget.
We would need a tool that, maybe using it after compilation, would allow
- Use some simple markup for issues, like note important or solved (in which case it could be erased)
- Erase all issues for production (there's probably something that already does that, I'm sure), except maybe some marked as comments that should be left in the source (meta data such as file names or whatever)
- It would be perfect if it could be tied with git and GitHub
- List unresolved issued
It would be weird that there's no such tool, but I've been unable to find it. On the other hand, if we set down to write it, would anybody else be interested in using it? Has somebody found similar problems and how have you solved them?
