Hi guys

Now that Anders is not actively coding on the port anymore,  I guess nobody really is. Well I would love a nice and complete gtk port on the mac so I'm trying to contribute where I can. The next thing I want to give a try is the menubar. I'm aware of the long discussion about this particular case but as far as I know nobody came with a final solution. It was more like a discussion about creating a special api or not. Well in my opinion the first menubar should be mapped to the top. This way a lot of gtk apps would compile out of the box. If it doesn't work he developer or the porter needs a way to fix the menubar the way it should be.

Well my big problem is that I practically don't have any knowledge of the gtk source and aren't an experienced open source programmer. What I do know is C, some Cocoa/Objective-C and a little bit of gtk programming. I figured out how to manually create a menubar in Cocoa and I had a brief look at  gtkitemfactory.c and gtkmenu.c. But I need somebody who can help me getting started. First of all I'm trying to understand how Anders added the objective-c code and overrode the functions. I bet there are people on this list that know the sources of gtk by hart. So any help would be highly appreciated.

Thanx in advance,
