My comments:

I like it, although I think there's time for doing more during the
summer. Splitting the files won't take much time, and refactoring
doesn't make sense when most functionality is incomplete. To be
honest, a long time after proposing this on the GSoC wiki I'm not
totally sure about splitting into a few files.

R_2004 and R_2007 support are not fully implemented, although the
grounds for it are almost done. Maybe you could change your proposal
and add those points. I would propose: finish R_2004 support ->
refactor -> implement R_2007 -> (if there's still time) implement
R_2010 which is very very similar to R_2007.

Also, the R_2004 and R_2007 decode functions are much better than the
R13/R14/R2000 one. Maybe there's a half way done.

Second, if by Simian you mean this[0], you shouldn't use it within
this project. It is non-free software, and we shouldn't promote it.

Third, please refactor your proposal structure to follow the GNU
guidelines for GSoC projects[1].

Fourth, and most importantly, rename your proposal to LibreDWG -
Decode Refactoring instead of just "Decode Refactoring".

I couldn't find it the first time I looked for LibreDWG
proposals. There are ~50 proposals within GNU for different projects.

I think you are qualified, but please improve the focus of your


happy hacking,
