Heh, true enough. I must admit when I saw the mockup artwork for the
potential GNOME IDE I somewhat drooled. Is that project still "a-go",
and if so is there somewhere where I could provide a little help?

There is Builder, for the C language:
Have it built locally. Noticed something here that I've seen in gedit
too, no doubt due to GtkSourceView. there is no automatic indentation,
i.e. hitting enter after a brace does not start a new indentation level,
Is there a roadmap for this, or is it intended to remain a demonstration

The Anjuta team worked on a JavaScript profile, I don't know if it is 
still in development and how far it went.

For my part, I work on GtkSourceView, the library used for displaying 
source code. I'm more in favor of specialized text editors instead of 
general-purpose ones, and GtkSourceView is the common part for the text 
editor. The problem is that it is still quite difficult to create the 
text editor part of an IDE. So we are moving some features from gedit to 
GtkSourceView, slowly but surely.

For a Git integration, see gitg. For a debugger integration, see nemiver 
or the debugger of Anjuta. The projects are normally open for making 
their code re-usable, or create D-Bus interfaces for communication 
between a text editor and the other applications.
I'm aware of gitg, and the integration could be quite interesting using
more modern widgets such as GtkListView.

I hope I've well summarized the situation,
It's been very helpful, I appreciate it :)
