The purpose of CasaSettings is to provide a single, authoritative source of information needed by all CASA software written in any supported language (C++, Python, Bash-script, etc.). The goal is to reduce or eliminate problems arising where different parts of the software system have different values for the same piece of information thereby causing headaches for developers and users.
We are currently gathering requirements. Please add comments to CAS-6362.
The entire effort is being tracked under CAS-5561.
