Sounds like a great start.. If you check out what's on the cvs tree, you should
be able to get an idea for how the plugins api works, and when development on
your IDE gets to the point where you know what you're going to need, just let
us know and we'll work on adding it.

Fraid I can't help you there - I've sort of been avoiding contact with CORBA

Yeah, emailing patches against what's on the cvs tree (if you don't have
anonymous access, check out Jim Pick's site - there's a link on the gnome
software map page) would be the best way to go. As for bandwidth, I got the
feeling gnome intended to incorporate GUIDE into their cvs tree when it got to
the point where it woud need it, so you'd probably need to contact whoever
maintains the cvs tree about that - Miguel maybe?
