About this Document

This is an official Request for Comment (RFC) for replacing GraphObjAttributes. RFCs represent one possible mechanism for soliciting feedback for core features / refactoring. For details on RFCs in general, check out the Wikipedia Entry: Request for Comments (RFCs)


On 10/13/2005, the Cytoscape Developers group unanimously voted to accept CyAttributes into the Cytoscape core. Work on implementation has begun, and the RFC is now officially closed to public comment. You can still add comments, but we can't guarantee that those comments will be accepted into the API until our next Cytoscape release.

How to Comment

To view/add comments, click on any of 'Comment' links below. By adding your ideas to the Wiki directly, we can more easily organize everyone's ideas, and keep clear records. Be sure to include today's date and your name for each comment. Here is an example to get things started: /RFC1_Comment_Name.

Try to keep your comments as concrete and constructive as possible. For example, if you find a part of the API makes no sense, please say so, but don't stop there. Take the extra step and propose alternatives.
