[Glade-devel] Can we combine efforts for C++ project skeleton creation?

Dear fellow hackers,

As the maintainer of glademm I had been developing a program which sets 
up a skeleton project (ready to compile) from a glade file.

[Should we restrict the discussion to only one list e.g. to the gnomemm 
or glademm list?]

Recent discussion with Murray (maintainer of [lib]g*mm ;-) ) lead to the 
thought that this should get delegated to a shared program.

So if there's enough interest and we manage to define the program's 
behaviour, I step forward as a possible co-maintainer [no I would not do 
it alone, had enough of this stuff with glademm].

- C++, python and bash are all fine with me (and I would accept any 
other language as a non-maintainer)
- configure.in, Makefile.am, po, src etc. should get generated by default.
- since the myriad of imaginable options (check for libglademm, which 
gnome version to test for, intltool, gettext, libtool, ...) make a 
command line specification tedious I propose for an XML file for 
specifying additional options (which kills bash IIRC).

Any ideas on how it should work?


PS: The recent glademm behaviour is as follows:
- never overwrite any file (instead create e.g. configure.in_new)
- gettext, gnome etc. are tested according to glade's preferences
- generate an example main() [creating all toplevel widgets, waiting on 
the first, cleanup, exit]
- generate a user class (.cc + .hh) and a UI class (_glade.cc + 
_glade.hh) for each toplevel widget. This might include setting up and 
calling libglademm.
- simply try it ;-)
