[gedit-list] Re: gedit developers recruitment

Hi Christophe,

I don't know if this is a planned improvement or not, but I have this (unfinished and not really clean) patch in my local tree which allows editing of remote files.
Yep, this is a planned improvement.
I worked on it a bit some time ago but I realized that due to some limitation and bug of gnome-vfs it will be not so easy to be implmented

I don't know how to detect if a gnome-vfs uri is writeable or not so I unconditionnaly tell it's writable,
hmmm... I think we should fix this problem (even if I know it is not easy to do, look also http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=46117)

and there is still some work to do to for the saving, but I managed to edit a ftp file with that patch ($prefix/share/application-registry/gnome-vfs.application also need to be edited to specify that gedit can open ftp uris). Err, actually gedit can't work with ftp locations because of a bug in gnome-vfs/eel.... Well, I swear this patch work :),I'll try to improve it when I find some time (not before one week or so)

yep cool.

Just thought I'd let you know about that patch in case you are interested,

yep, I' m really interested in it.
