Re: [Gimp-developer] What about switching from Gtk+ to Qt

May be I shot too high on porting everything to Qt. But someone else thing that cmake is way better than autohell. I learn autotools when I try to work on Pgadmin and this really discourage me, instead I had a great experience with cmake when I made a Kate plugin. I needed to add just a line of code to get my plugin compiled.

@Shlomi I'm interested on cooperate to do the porting of the build system.

I think that this activity will not subtract or divert forces of other developers frim the project.

For some reason, this reminds me of last month when I began porting an old VB6 project of mine into VS2010 (made no easier by a mandatory import step through VS2008).  I had to fix a thousand-plus build errors all by hand because the VB programming model had simply changed so much from VB6.  The end result both runs nicer on the outside and looks nicer on the inside, but the transition itself was just plain hell.
