Gedit plugins

Richards little devhelp plugin for Gedit made me motivated enough to start looking at the plugin framework.

As he points out, the interface nice: simple and straight-forward. I decided to give it a go and wrote a little plugin to do remote editing, a la gobby. It allows you to share a buffer and connect to a remote one. It's little more than a proof of concept, but it allows you to edit the same document from different instances of gedit. All done in about 200 lines of python, including a custom protocol for remote editing. Twisted made that experience almost trival.
If anyone is curious and want to try it out fetch the tarball from here.


Today I finally branched for Gtk+ 2.10. There are quite a few bugs with simple patches attached to in bugzilla. Gustavo suggested that we should do a bug day, which would be great. Especially if we can get a couple of new contributors.
