Re: Preferences in Yelp?!

Hi Christian,

thanks to bring this up again, it's useful. Sorry for the delay...

For review/checkin stages I think we can be quite fast now, I can do
both and I'm trying to do them timely. If I'm doing a bad work feel free
to spam my mail box :)

> - mozilla and gnome release cycles aren't synchronised

gtk/gnome cycles are not well syncronized either. I think you can
arrange it as long as the API is stable (and gtkmozembed API is).

That's a bit of an issue. But maybe we could just leave new apis
unimplemented for gtk1 and generally consider gtk1 support deprecated...
something along these lines.

Where would you expect goals to differ?

To me the advantages of doing this work on mozilla cvs are:

- API stability (for the C part, which is what all GNOME embedders
except epiphany and galeon I'd expect to use)
- One package for just wrapper code would be a bit of a waste ;)
- With a few additions we can cover the needs of most of the embedders.
Galeon and Epiphany would need extensions that arent really necessary to
yelp and others.
- They maintain it :)
