Re: Considering taking on Windows port

The problem is not so much Gnumeric as it is the dependencies.
They keep changing causing the necessary patching to break.

In tools/win32 there is code that in principle makes it possible
to do "make release module=gnumeric" for the compilation
and "make release target=installer" for the installer.

This is with cross-compilation from Linux.  (Not actually true
cross compilation as various parts of glib and gtk+ require
that the resulting binaries can be run.  However, the kernel
and Wine generally makes that work without effort.)

You should start from current git, imho. You'll find some code in the
gnumeric/tools/win32 directory.

Hope this helps,

Okay, I'll take the plunge then.  Starting point - how / where do I
pull the last code set that successfully compiled on Windows?
