So just what is GnomePythonExtras?

Friday 31 December 2004 by Anonymous
It's worth mentioning (though we have had a release in the news here before) that GnomePythonExtras is a new package in the PyGTK family, consisting of add-ons to GnomePython that aren't part of the official Gnome platform. It serves as a standard place to release bindings for additional gnome-related libraries in the hope that they receive attention from a larger userbase, with the side-intent of being folded into the main distribution. GnomePythonExtras is currently maintained by the expert Gustavo Carneiro of Portugal (though he probably wouldn't like to describe himself that way, I think I can get away with it).

gnome-print bounty announced by GRAMPS team

Friday 20 February 2004 by Anonymous
GRAMPS is a pygtk/gnome-python based genealogy program. The GRAMPS team is looking for a person to step forward to claim the task of gnome-print integration into GRAMPS. This will use the GNOME print infrastructure to allow print preview and direct printing of reports.

Don Allingham, GRAMPS maintainer writes: ''We have a start on the code, but not enough resources to complete the task as quickly as we would like. With the donations we have received, we have been able to set the bounty for this task at $100. While it may not be a tremendous amount, it should buy a few books, quite a bit of pizza, or a new disk drive.''

For more information and the requirements, see the Gnome Print Bounty page on the GRAMPS wiki.

Updated 2004-03-11: Alex Roitman took up the challenge and has finished integration of gnome-python with GRAMPS.
