Code maintainence  is an important part of any project's life cycle &
is often the most dreaded part by developers. Majority of them think
that adding new features is _the_ most exciting part of the project
cycle. However, this phase is good (& very important) for the
developers who are in the process of learning the toolkit's internals
- like me.

I would suggest that when the decision about hiring developers is made
(or discussed), maintainence work should be strongly put forward...
specially since we will decide to branch/develop for the 3.0 branch in

I would be happy to volunteer towards maintainence of GTK+.
