Notability[edit]

Every product article needs reliable independent sources WP:RS to establish notability WP:N as required by WP:GNG and WP:CORPDEPTH.

The sources cited here are weak. I found the first one (Modular programming languages: 7th Joint Modular Languages Conference) on Amazon but according to the table of contents, the cited page 20 is in the middle of an article titled, "Event-Based Programming Without Inversion of Control", by Philipp Haller and Martin Odersky; David E. Lightfoot, named as the author is the volume editor. I wasn't able to find the article yet, but this sounds like a mention.

The second one (Future Information Technology, Part I: 6th International Conference) is better. It hasn't been released yet but after searching, I found it online; I'll update the reference in the article. And as a primary source, the sourceforge link is useless for establishing notability. I would prefer to see a second good source.

I'm also concerned that the article appears to largely paraphrase the Chapel Overview on the Cray site for the purpose of promoting WP:PROMOTION a future product (e.g., "It is being developed as part of the Cray Cascade project") WP:CRYSTAL. Msnicki (talk) 23:35, 16 August 2011 (UTC)


Some Proposed Changes[edit]


I have a conflict of interest with Chapel, so cannot make these changes myself, but propose the following improvements:

Thanks for your consideration. 136.162.66.1 (talk) 04:07, 16 September 2016 (UTC)

@136.162.66.1: yellow tickY Partly done:

As for the other three points I believe most of the statements are true. Programming Models for Parallel Computing is a primary source, as the book author Bradford L. Chamberlain seems to be a Principal Engineer at Cray Inc. I will hold this edit request for another review by another author. 80.221.159.67 (talk) 10:55, 29 September 2016 (UTC)
