> 	• What is your evaluation of the proposal?

It's a small improvement which will be very useful for a certain class of people/projects. I see no downsides.

> 	• Is the problem being addressed significant enough to warrant a change to Swift?

Not significant for me, but quick enough to implement to be worth it I guess.

> 	• Does this proposal fit well with the feel and direction of Swift?


> 	• If you have used other languages or libraries with a similar feature, how do you feel that this proposal compares to those?

SwiftPM already goes much further in terms of package development (with edit) than most other dependency managers for iOS. ++

> 	• How much effort did you put into your review? A glance, a quick reading, or an in-depth study?

Two read-throughs.
