Whoa, this is cool. Thanks a lot!

We're still in the process of figuring out what the next generation HIG
should look like. We made some good progress with that not long ago,
though there hasn't been any action for a little while. Personally
speaking, I've been preoccupied with other 3.0 related stuff. I'm sure
we will get back on track, but I'm not sure when that will be.

How the new HIG will be encoded and distributed is a question that
hasn't been fully answered yet, afaik. There are a few issues that need
to be discussed there:

 * Possibilities for comments and discussion

 * Making it a dynamic resource - we'd like people to be able to add
experimental patterns and for experimental patterns to evolve into
stable ones

 * Integration into GNOME dev tools

 * Web hosting and integration with web-based dev docs

If you or Shaun have any ideas on this, it would be great to hear them.
There's a brief account of the aims for the new HIG on the planning page
[1] and which might help.
