I hope that this source file in the libglade tarball was easy
to find.

Good to know.  In fact I found it on my FC6 box as part of the
libglade2-devel package, installed to


Of course to find it I had to do rpm -ql libglade2-devel.  Alas most
developers who are going to be using libglade won't be compiling
libglade from source so they likely won't find this file straight away.
But the file is still there, even under binary packaged systems.

This is a real real real shame, this file that sits in svn as a part 
of the package, is situated in the most obvious place to find out
things about the actual package, its in the actual package itself.

How much more obvious can this be to find ?


PS: This is not a personal thing, countless hordes have come in
search of a libglade example without ever consulting the tarball,
its just getting a little frustrating by now - but what can we do
to improve the situation ?
