Re: New module proposal: libdmapsharing

Hi Mike,

thanks for your interest in making libdmapsharing an official part of
GNOME (though the proposal deadline for 2.28 has already passed).

I wonder if this may interfere with other existing projects, e.g.
Conduit? (Though Conduit has not seen a release since 21-Oct-2008 so I
wonder how active the development currently is.)

These are the *planned* resources.

Hmm, I see only one release tarball at so far.
Mentioning because "Modules should show a steady progress" according to - on the other
hand there is a lot of project activity in the repo.

Do user-visible strings exist? It seems there is no i18n support at all.

Does API documentation (gtk-doc format?) for developers exist?
