Phew...

Long time... busy with work, sleep deprivation and a nasty cold I'm incubating right now...

Been working on my bookmarks idea, things are going OK, although the toughest is yet to come: the XML parser... Still have a lot to read on libxml before starting that one...

Anyway, glib is absolutely fantastic... Chapeau to the GNOME team for it!

After all is done, I'll integrate it on Encompass as a proof of concept, and we'll see... One problem is, should I do it GPL or LGPL? I'd go for the GPL, but then Mozilla gang wouln't probably use it if they liked it, and even though I'm not looking for fame, it would be a nice enhancement, IMHO... LGPL should be OK, but I'm actually for freedom, and LGPL would mean non-proprietary systems would be able to use it as well... IE? Argh!

So if anyone is reading this diary, I'd appreciate your comments and help on this issue...

Not much more, I'm coming to love GNOME more and more everyday, although I find the CORBA architecture a bit too fuzzy and complicated... We'll see...

BTW, I am using a documentation tool called doxygen, at http://www.stack.nl/~dimitri/doxygen/ It's OK, far from perfect, but still very useful... I don't understand why it needs Qt-2.1.0 if it's a CLI app... I'll have to ask the author... I'm looking at other utilities as well, I'd prefer to stick to GNOME libs so people don't have to install Qt and Qt-devel if they don't want... Maybe Doc++, which is GPL is ok, and looks really mature and powerful, who knows? Any advice on this?
