Hi! My name is Ned, and I just launched a product called DiffPlug. It is a tool for comparing two different versions of a file, and merging them back into one. It also makes working with SVN, Git, etc. a lot easier.
It currently works with text files, image files, and Simulink files. Simulink is a block-diagram language somewhat similar to Max. I think it would be very doable to take my Simulink differ and make it into a Max differ.
I am posting here for two reasons:
1) Is anybody interested in using such a tool?
2) Is anybody interested in working with me on such a tool?
I used Max a lot for a school project a few years ago, but I'm not a power user. It would also be really helpful to have access to somebody's SVN history of their patches to test the differ with. I live in San Francisco, so if you're in the area I'd be happy to meet/work in person.
I'll pay close attention to this thread, but you can also contact me at email@example.com
