Re: [gftp] gFTP interface

Hi Oliver,

sure, that's why I proposed me to do it. I can't really help with the core 
of gftp but I guess I can do something with the ui.

again I can understand, it seems some people are not really concerned by 
the graphical layout of applications but others do.

Well my thoughts are that:
- the main window doesn't need much changes,
- the options window need to be change
- maybe do something with the bookmarks window too

I agree on that point, you can do all the work with gtk only.

Finally, I'll just say that I don't feel like a total redesign is needed 
but I'm much likely into improving what can be.
