Re: [gitg] Helping hand (both directions)


please upgrade libgit2 and libgit2-glib again as GgitBranch was
introduced a few days ago.

Hi all, I really like gitg and make a profuse use of it in projects.

Time ago I start seeking inside its internals, and quickly give up, because all that c stuff. Seeing that know there is a new aproach in vala, -project who tries to hide all that c stuff, in its own words- i think it's time for a next try.

First step for me was to update to ubuntu 12.10 (because of GTK+ 3.6)

After cloning libgit2, libgit2-glib, libpeas, vala -this last one don't know if it is really needed- and compile all in master branch I was in conditions to compile gitg. Next step install dependencies, no problem.

Now real work.

$ ./
$ make

I couldn't find Ggit.Branch in gir files from libgit2-glib. Any suggestions?

To keep things going I checkout tag v0.2.5 and because of deprecations I have to use:

$ make -k CPPFLAGS+="-Wno-error=deprecated-declarations"

but I have a v0.2.5 running

Now with a develop environment ready -or almost ready- what do you need help for? I have detect wrong spanish translations, know about lack of website -jekyll seems interesting- and issues in bugzilla for 0.2.x are all unconfirmed.

Can I suggest to open issues in github? It have milestones too, which can help to attract more developers, and meanwhile there is not website, the github wiki could be a good replacement.
