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. :-)
