In case anyone is interested, feel free to try out a 100% WAF-ied
version of gnome-python:
The WAF based tarball (including a self contained waf script, which is
all you need to build) is 249K, while an autotools version is 424K. I
could reduce the size even more if I removed configure.ac and the
Makefile.am's. It also builds much faster, especially if you count
the ./autogen.sh part, though I didn't to get actual numbers.
When I have some more time I will see about making jhbuild use waf, to
get people testing this new system. Later, if no serious problems or
objections are found, I would like to switch to it.
PS: try the '-p' waf option for greater eye candy effect.
