No it isn't sold.  I hope 6.2 will be but for that we need to issue

released by march and this will provide us breathing time as I don't
think RH 6.2 will go without it.

I think everyone has thought the other was doing it.  However we must
become known and that is why I think we should build a beta fast and
then issue a manifesto

By the way does anyone know of a resource about GTK programming?
