Re: A Gtk's build system ?

However, building Gtk+ is not trivial and I am sure waf is going to require
some fixing before it can support a full build, if people want to take on
the task of setting up a branch and checking what it would look like, I
would be happy to help upstreaming any extensions needed (I have commit
rights in the waf repository). On the other hand I wouldn't keep my hopes
too high that the Gtk+ maintainers are going to happily move over unless
someone shows what major improvements the port would bring.

To repeat what Emmanuele already said: I have zero interest in
switching GTK+ build systems. autoconf works pretty well for us.
Applications can of course use any build system their maintainer
prefers, but I don't see why GTK+ should be providing a build system
for you... we have our hands full providing you a toolkit.
