I had the same problem, that is I did not know how to install Gnome2
except from sources and it seemed a huge task. I chose the Garnome
'distrib' which is just the sources and some makefiles, and the only
thing to do to build it is a "make install". It is a 150Mb download, and
if you want I can put it on a CD and send it to you. Tell me.

I'm going to work on this and soon propose my point of view and some
ideas of development.

Right. The best IMO would be to create a new web page in the Gnome-db
web site.

Then there are some opportunitis for you to work on:
- writing, as I did for the gASQL's doc, a page describing all the work
you did on the joins.
- prepare a nice layout for an Egnima page on the gnome-db web site.
- work on the libgda and libgnomedb's API documentation
- work on the Egnima's developper documentation to improve what I did.

Tell me if you need any help.
