@milancurcic, I am sorry for my delay.
I know clawpack and in particular I studied the work of Prof. LeVeque (and his great book, I invited him to join our group without success), however I do not like the development-way of clawpack & co. (amrclawpack): it is not OOP, it is not moderm (many .f not modularized, old-fashioned style) and it is quite monolitic (at least basing on my memory, it is passed sometimes from my last checking).
After some years of work, I have built-up the preference to small libraries being tailored to perform a reduced set of tasks, but doing these at the best (reusable, modular, well documented, etc...). Clawpack is great, but it is not what I want.
As the weno is concerned, I don't care how many people need it, I just want it and thus I like to share with the community: probably the demand for a weno-library is limited to me and maybe zaak, but this is not a matter for me (maybe later day I will start a project being totally usefulness :-) ). Each time I start to writing a code I check if there is an existing one in order to avoid to reinvent the wheel: for WENO I find a nice project in Python, but no one in Fortran satisfying my desiderata. Obviously, my search could be incomplete and if you can point out nice project I will very happy to study/use it. In particular, clawpack is not a WENO interpolations library, but a solver for PDEs system of conservation laws.
Maybe, you do not like I started the project into the group framework, but I supposed that this was the spirit of the group: start each project we care about hoping that other members will be interested on, but do not limit yourself I you will be alone. Indeed, I hope that all you open a lot of new projects soon, beacuse I am very interested to learn many other things that are outside from my experience. Anyhow, if I am misleading the group aims, I apologize myself.
I do not follow your and @giacombum points: what you are suggesting? @giacombum seems to promote the group should inglobate ALL fortran projects, that should include also a project like Wenoof that have just one interested member, on the contrary it seems (due to my bad English undestanding, probably) that you are promoting only projects that many members want, and this should exclude Wenoof. Maybe, you want that the group starts a discussion before open a new project?
I vote for a free starting approach: all member should be allowed to start a new project, then, if the group votes that this project does not satisfy the group roles (aims, ethics, interests... I will try to add some hints into the group's mission page) simply remove the project from the group umbrella and leave it only under the member's personal benhalf. The reasons I like this approach are:
These are my opinions, I hope to be on topic.
Oooops... I am sorry I was too lenghty!
