Hi all,

I'm planing to revive the M$-Win32 port of the Midnight Commander.

During the past few years I did a little Development (based on 4.1.36), and
realeased a binary Distribution.
(see )

The public interest seems quite OK - I have some 170 hits/week, and
communication with some 30 active mc-users on Windows (95/98/NT/2000)

Currently I'm on the way to merge my changes with the latest mc-source, and
try to make mc compile and link with mingw-gcc again.

In this context I have a few questions

Win32, or to merge in the existing win32-glib-port which was done for the

3. Being a native german-speaker I found that the german translation has
