Well, yesterday was a really good day indeed. Federico and Jonathan are interested in GtkGrid and this is more than I could dream about.
Federico even told me that they are considering it for being in GTK+ 2.6:
<federico> estoy platicando con jrb acerca de gtkgrid :) <federico> hay planes para ponerlo en gtk+ 2.6 si esta listo para esas fechas <federico> entonces si tienes preguntas, no dudes en consultarme
Then I asked what need to be done for this milestone. They kindly answered me so now I have these short time goals:
- Write a desing document explaining what the Grid is and what it is not.
- Complete the API for the Grid
- Write some documentation for the API itself and some sort tutorial with examples.
- Ask gnome-db guys to make a branch and let me put my hands on Mergeant to see how good the Grid is in a real project
As you can see there is a *lot* of work to do so any help is more than appreciated.
In the meantime Jonathan is helping me to get a combo renderer working in the TreeView (and I'm copying ideas to make it work on the Grid) and we are close to get it. :-)
