GTalkabout is a type of communication tool for discussing source code. It is suitable for programmers, software development, testing, management, programming enthusiasts. Unlike the traditional way of discussion, GTalkabout relates the messages and the position of the source code. Messages could have the property of code's comments and can be located through the code, and vice versa. Messages compared with comments have the following advantages: 1. Comments are provided by the source code's author. The lack of interaction, often doesn't help readers to understand the source code. On the other hand, the message can be made by either the author or by the reader, who can help others understand and can also ask others for help. 2. A piece of code might involve multiple processes, such as a function called more than one place, or a piece of code could have different flow and output according to different input. If there are too many comments and too little code, it can become difficult for the reader to decipher. On the other hand, messages can be read separately; for example, a post and it's replies will explain one process of a piece of code, another post and it's replies could also explain the same piece of code. 3. The comments only include text; but, messages can contain text, images, a patch of code, or position in another project to explain code with text, images, create patches to fix bugs; and make the logical relation of multiple related projects.
