this will probably require an account on LDAP so that you can push the
binaries like any other maintainer. we can definitely set that up.

This has been taken care of. Many thanks!

- if there's any interest, we could move these build script to

  The repo could maybe use a better name too?

this will require a Git account, which I think you already have.


I think it would be good to have the scripts on, to avoid having to
hunt them down in case people want to contribute to them and/or use

Will do :) Anybody have any suggestions about the repository name?

For GTK+ 3 and future releases: nothing has been set in stone, I'm
open to whatever consensus is reached, whether it'll be:
- continuing with Tor's build scripts like I did above for 2.24.X
- build script for a mingw-get-able repository
- something else...

Neil Roberts has been working on a reliable way to build MSI installers
for Clutter applications like Pinpoint:

Have been doing something related for the PyGTK All-in-one installer:

It takes a "build description" file like:
downloads required files, extracts them, applies transformations if requested,
repacks, etc until finally a .msi is produced.

It is currently capable of packaging zips from and also Python
distutils generated .msi files (for PyCairo, PyGTK, PyGObject, etc).
Cleaning this up and making it more generic and easier to use is something
I've been wanting to do for a long time now...

and we have a mingw build script shipped with Clutter itself:

which depends on the pre-built DLLs whenever possible, so we're
obviously interested in sharing the solutions.

Interesting. There seems to be a lot of duplication of the same ideas all over the place. Sharing solutions would indeed be a good idea! Let's invite interested parties
to windows-devel-list gnome org and start the discussion?
