I have bugs in bugzilla for all gst bugs I run into, that should be
enough I'd hope. Plus I don't see how a working, released app with
workaround helps fixing the bugs it works around. That's not exactly a
test case is it, but that aside.

+ thinking (net)rb is ready for general consumption is just nonsense, so
putting in hacks 'for the users' is bullshit.

I was actually planning to do a release real soon, since it seems to be
working very well for local stuff so far.

Anyway, if anyone just keeps forking I see little hope in getting a
decent, coordinated rb ever off the ground again. I mean what do we have
now, netrb, Company babbling about something called libparty, whats
(I do not consider a bunch of glue-together hacks decent, sorry. I know
I'm sounding bitchy here but this is pissing me off.)
I mean hell I am not really motivated but I'm just trying to get some
things done again, like implementing the audiocd support because the
view was fixed. I'd be just as happy not do anything, I don't really
have an interest here any more - just trying to help getting things
going again.
Just trying to pick this up without any prior rb or even gnome
experience is just not going to work, and I can't say the code in the
netrb tree looks very healty either.
