Re: [gtkmm] A grand plan

Doh, I prematurely send the last email by accident.

I think this is a great idea, and something I had be mulling about for quite
some time. Currently, each of those modules have their own web-site, release
plan, and status. An umbrella project which provides a single location to
download the entire sdk with the knowledge that a release from the umbrella
project has been tested to ensure all modules work together, would be just

I don't think the umbrella project should be too hard to maintain. It's
just a matter of keeping a watch/monitor on the sub-projects, and whenever
any of them have a formal release, one checks to make sure it works together
with the latest releases of the other sub-projects, then add the release to
the umbrella.
