hi everyone.

since i am using the umbrello now more and more i have some things i 
thought i run by. i know its an opensource project and i could help 
out myself and provide patches. and i definitely would like to, once i 
have some spare time (beside my open source projects:-) and work)  i 
will definitely have a look and may be i can provide some input too.
just for the record i work with PHP.

but for now i just want to throw in some ideas.

generating and importing code.
i noticed that using umbrello in the dev-process is really cool, but 
when it comes to really developing stuff i would still have to update 
two things parallel. the code itself (which might have been generated 
out of umbrello) and the UML-presentation in umbrello.
so my idea was it would be great if umbrello could 'work' on the 
existing classes this way that it reads the class structure or 
generates it and when modifying it in umbrello it leaves all the 
existing code as it is and adds/modifies the things i changed/added in 

customizing im- and export
when exporting the code it would be great to be able to have some code 
template-pieces which are used for the generation. i.e.
	include '<package>/<classname>'
might be exported as
	require_once $config->classPath.'<package>/<classname>';
since my code might require it to be done like this (PHP is just that 
i hope it is clear what i mean

generating the pieces of code that i 'draw' in the activity diagram

just some ideas :-)


... opensource @ vision:produktion ...

... translating template engine ....

... authentication system ....
