yes! this would be great. Tabbed windowing is one of our top-targets.

thanks for analysis :)

OK guys. Looks like you will sit there wondering what to do, unless
I'll push you a little bit :) And that's what we need - more
developers with write access. It will speed up development process

So now you will go to and ask for
account. Give my email in there and gnome team will ask me for
confirmation. When John decided to give me write access it happened
exactly this way, and it took 2 weeks to wait for gnome team to respond!

Don't forget to attach your key. Here's the email I sent,
and you will need to write a similar one:

heh, and where is Ian? :) That was ... hey, that was almost exactly a year ago!

So now, Timo and Scott it depends on you if you will sent that
account request or not. But also Andrea and Christopher please feel
invited too! As I mentioned - GSR already has a write access and
doesn't need to send such request.

About moving to another repo (be it GIT or BZR), we will see how
things evolve. The current problem is that you don't have a write access
and it needs to be solved first.
