I just found this issue https://github.com/imba/imba/issues/263 on github and It notes that symbols were removed from Imba v2 with the note 'use strings instead`, As someone who generally likes symbols and the associated syntax I was wondering if there was anywhere that the justification for this decision was documented?
I also Am wondering about the decision making process in general, it seems as though many changes never have a github issue (such as the removal of symbols), is there any sort of gathering of feedback/suggestions that goes on before making major changes like this? Any roadmap? I would really prefer to weigh-in on these major changes before they happen! I know in the end the author decides the fate of the language, but It is pretty strange to me that a proposed breaking change wouldn’t even have a github issue before being implemented
