How about a good WWW interface to the gtk-list archives right on
redhat?  The discuss archive is not threaded, etc, etc.

I should say now I've secretly been working on a GTK web page
of my own, which is starting to fill out.  Take a look:

Keep in mind I'm still working on the details.

I'd contribute to such a venture.  I think it makes more sence to 
make an C++ interface to GTK that is somewhat similar (but all it's 
own) to Qt to make porting and convincing people easier.  But I'm 
not much of a C++ programmer (or C for that matter).
