Re: Hi there

Thanks  for  your  input , yes of course  one would need to learn or know how to code.

I'm willing  to  learn and study,read,practice , get better  with it.

Everyone  starts  something  new, they have to learn.

Life is a learning  experience  and  sure knowing  how to code before  stepping  into being a maintainer is a plus. Though  some  can learn in many  ways .

I'm willing  and hopefully  if allowed  I can ask this mailing  list  questions  if I have problems  or need help  with  some  code.

Sure, you will have to gain experience with the code and go step by step, but if you want, you will be able to gain it ;)

Not sure if I'm getting above my head?

I have used Linux for many years. Started out on a Netcom Dial up Unix account. Back when we had to compile programs and Kernals, etc.

I just wanna let you know I don't have deep experience in programming but I could find my way around, etc.

Anyway I will email the person you said is the current person that is maintaining the app and go from there.

Thanks for replying

Hi Dolan!

Nice to hear you'd like to maintain Gtranslator :)

Yo should first contact the current maintainer, Sean de Burca (, to notice him you are interested in assuming the maintenance of the tool, and he will inform you about any current work in progress, status, etc.

Anyway, I could help you with some pending bugs that should be attended... this might be a good way to have a first contact with gtranslator's source code.

Many thanks for taking care of this!

I might be out of my element. But I thought I would offer to 
be a maintaner of one of the Gnome apps that is not currently mainted ?

such as Gtranslator ?

I might be wrong on the app name
