I wanted to update the list on progress with VTK modular. Chris
Harris, Brad King and I have been working on completing the changes
necessary to merge modular VTK into master. This will involve the
construction of a topic branch first moving all files to their new
location, and then making various edits to the files (export macros,
etc) and finally overlaying the new build system. If you are curious
and would like to see a modularized VTK source tree I have just pushed
an update,


If you would like to see the current manifest file (used to move the
files from VTK master to their modular locations) the most up to date
repository is here,


I would appreciate feedback on class placement, especially for
elements that do not yet have future locations, or do not have build
files associated. This is a major part of the motivation for removing
many of the legacy code in VTK. I am currently working on ensuring all
tests are going to the correct places and diagnosing test failures.
Current submissions from this branch go here,


My windows machine should be submitting test results soon too (it is
pretty slow, but it will get there). I have the rendering tests
working with the testing factory, and some of the advanced Python
wrapping working too. Once this is merged there will be opportunity
after that to move things around a little too, but it would be great
to ensure this is close before we merge the moves into master.
