We've actually been trying to migrate the project to gnome.org for more

gnome.org account were met with no response. Assuming Ralf wishes to
remain attached to this project
I do. However, the way gnome.org processed our attempt to move the
project to gnome.org has caused my interest in further pursuing a mover
of gtkglext to gnome.org to a minimum.
I regret having to say so, but provided the way gnome.org processed our
attempt to move the project to gnome.org, I am not sure further pursuing
a mover of gtkglext to gnome.org is a good idea.
and assuming the idea of moving to
gnome.org isn't met with complete derision by the current comaintainers,
that is the first problem that would need solving.
Well, only if gnome.org changes their attitude. Otherwise gtkglext is
likely better off staying with sourceforge or with moving to another site.
For my part, I see migration to gnome.org as something of an
inevitability because I see this project's future (if it has one at all)
as including absorption into GTK+ proper in some form. I think moving to
gnome.org raises this project's visibility among GNOME developers and
hopefully facilitates realization of that future.
So I'm the easy sell. But you may need to convince folks here that a
move to gnome.org won't make administrative tasks completely impossible.
Because, frankly, that's how it looks to us right now.
