[IPOL discuss] how to provide code updates after the publication

Hi all,

Like any other publication, when an IPOL article is published, its
content is freezed, because it has been reviewed nd there must be an
unambiguous answer to the question "what is the IPOL published article

But like any code, the code for the algorithm pubolished in IPOL may
evolve, some improvements could be implemented, some bugs fixed,
... and the authors would like to provide these updates to the IPOL

One solution is to provide these updates in another web space, and
mention it in the IPOL article. For example, you could write ...

    # Implementation

    An implementation of the algorithm is available : algo.tgz
    Future code updates will be available at http://somewhere.net/algo/

... and manage the http://somewhere.net/algo/ page with your future
code updates.

A good place for http://somewhere.net/algo/ is the web space you can
use on the http://www.ipol.im/ server. You can simply add (only add,
don't remove) your new code archives to a simple folder ...


... or use a revision control tool (such as git, or svn, or whatever)
and tag the IPOL published version and future updates.

That's what I did for the published article «Retinex Poisson Equation:
a Model for Color Perception»:

This was done after the publication, so this information was added as
a "note from the editor".
