This is the feedback thread for the second round of Community 
Review of DIP 1035, "@system Variables".


Posts in this thread must adhere to the feedback thread rules 
outlined in the Reviewer Guidelines (and listed at the bottom of 
this post).

That document also provides guidelines on contributing feedback 
to a DIP review. Please read it before posting here. If you would 
like to discuss this DIP, please do so in the discussion thread:

You can find DIP 1035 here:

The review period will end at 11:59 PM ET on March 11, or when I 
make a post declaring it complete. Feedback posted to this thread 
after that point may be ignored.

At the end of this review round, the DIP will be moved into the 
Post-Community Round 2 state. Significant revisions resulting 
from this review round may cause the DIP manager to require 
another round of Community Review, otherwise the DIP will be 
queued for the Final Review.

Posts in this thread that do not adhere to the following rules 
will be deleted at the DIP author's discretion:

* All posts must be a direct reply to the DIP manager's initial 
post, with only two exceptions:

     - Any commenter may reply to their own posts to retract 
feedback contained in the original post

     - The DIP author may (and is encouraged to) reply to any 
feedback solely to acknowledge the feedback with agreement or 
disagreement (preferably with supporting reasons in the latter 

* Feedback must be actionable, i.e., there must be some action 
the DIP author can choose to take in response to the feedback, 
such as changing details, adding new information, or even 
retracting the proposal.

* Feedback related to the merits of the proposal rather than to 
the contents of the DIP (e.g., "I'm against this DIP.") is 
allowed in Community Review (not Final Review), but must be 
backed by supporting arguments (e.g., "I'm against this DIP 
because..."). The supporting arguments must be reasonable. 
Obviously frivolous arguments waste everyone's time.

* Feedback should be clear and concise, preferably listed as 
bullet points (those who take the time to do an in-depth review 
and provide feedback in the form of answers to the questions in 
the documentation linked above will receive much gratitude). 
Information irrelevant to the DIP or which is not provided in 
service of clarifying the feedback is unwelcome.
