Ya, cdrdao was missing at the time, it went back in within days of us
finding it was missing. I was doing more mail list stuff then and less

So this is mostly GUI stuff? So two porting issues, G2 and gtk2 to gtk3.
The last gui stuff I have done(outside of script) was on an Atari STe
Mega... when BBSs were still big, 1200 Baud was fast and Internet was not
yet in anyone's house ;-) So it is about time to learn something new. I'll
do what I can to help.

Are there tools for building a gtk3 GUI? would it be easier to build the
gui and then figure out what code it needs to be connected to? Or is it
better to change out bit by bit?

Worth it whenever it gets done, but sooner the better. I will probably
keep 11.04 on a disk somewhere just to keep gcdmaster available till it's
done. I would suggest getting the editing part done first, but probably
easy first and harder later.
