Guess I missed that on irc..
Who is menthos?
[searches through gst-devel archives...]
Ah.. so back in July (!) there were 4 messages from the middle of a
discussion.  Didn't look like anything was decided from that.  Guess
after 3.5 months I must have assumed that topic was over.  ;)

What does that have to do with where the code is?  Anyone can send in
patches for translations or gnomeappness.

I'm not trying to be negative about this... just trying to understand
why we should go to the trouble of moving stuff.  For instance, the
magic CVS "common" dir we have in gst CVS is going to break with this
move.  Now someone is going to have to keep that in sync across CVSes.

Are releases still going to be on sf?

In theory I would be keeping the debian/ dir up-to-date.  I've been a
little slack about that though, sorry.  So I guess I need GNOME CVS
access just to update that?

> I don't see any other apps moving any time soon however.

Why are the other two, editor and recorder, treated different?  They
could certainly use similar patches I suppose.
