The future of REQUIRE and Project.toml for package managers

#1

Hi all,

Various thread posts and things in the docs seem to suggest that the long-term plan for registered packages is to get rid of REQUIRE files and replace them with Project.toml files. Is this actually the case, or am I inferring things incorrectly?

Some posts, eg here seem to suggest that REQUIRE will always be around and it might be easier to just stick with REQUIRE rather than moving to Project.toml. Is there a consensus on this?

Cheers,

Colin
