So, what would be really nice... is if we could do the
   a.) We make a build of Glade 3.8 and 3.10 on win32 using
       Dieter's scripts (some builds exist already in the 
       wild I think)... I cannot make any win32 builds myself.

3.8 binaries are linked on the bug report mentioned above.
These depend on the GTK+ version from ftp.gnome.org/www.gtk.org

There's a 3.8 version available on OBS that depends on everything
else also from OBS here:

and an handy OBS download script is described here:

For 3.10, I'm also working on that. Building GTK+ 3 is easy
enough but it it porting PyGObject/gobject-introspection to
Windows that is taking time...

Right, we have that same problem on osx, currently gobject-introspection
does not build there.

However I think for now it's perfectly acceptable to dist win32/osx
binaries of Glade 3.10 with the python plugin disabled until the
gobject-introspection build eventually get's fixed.

Also... I wonder what exactly is the part where the 
gobject-introspection build breaks, perhaps an eventual
cross-compiler solution could be dished out to generate
girs for win32/osx from a normal linux box (maybe generating
the binary typelib for the gir should be built on a win32/osx
system using a gir file built on linux ?)... anyway, for 
now I'd rather say "its not my problem" and build 3.10 
without python where gobject-introspection doesnt build.

   b.) We get the same 3.8/3.10 builds out on native osx using 
       ige-mac-bundler, I can perhaps do this... maybe I could
       try building it and you could try my scripts to verify it
       works on more than one site...
   c.) We finally add the 'glade/build/win32'

The script on the bug report assumes build/mswindows as sooner or
later the "32" in there is going to be irrelevant. Also that same
script should work fine to build 64 bit binaries by simply putting
mingw-w64's 64-bit producing toolchain on PATH before the 32-bit
producing mingw-w64 or mingw.org version. But I don't mind changing
it if you prefer win32.

I don't really care about the name so much.

and 'glade/build/osx'
       subdirectories to glade's git repo, each subdir will have a
       README file and some scripts to bundle/package up Glade on
   d.) In the future we hopefully have to worry less about getting
       builds out on various operating systems...

From what I've seen up until now, the amount of worry will mostly
depend on the amount of interest from some of Glade's dependencies
in platforms other than Linux...

The win32 binaries have always been in high demand, osx binaries I
suspect are less in demand probably because I never made a vast amount
of builds (only a few osx builds, and to my knowledge I'm the only one
who made any osx builds, however there have been lots of win32 builds
from the sf.net project http://sourceforge.net/projects/gladewin32/).

Anyway, having a standard build for this in tree will certainly make
things easier for anyone who wants to build on win32/osx and will
hopefully encourage the availability of Glade on those platforms.
