first of all, I want to congratulate the effort of this project, you are
doing an excellent work.
My name is Alberto Ruiz, and I’m a contributor of the pygtk project. One
my main worries is to get Gtk+ and PyGTK easy to get and deploy for
My main work is to be able to reproduce the building environment of the
gladewin32 guy, Ivan Wong. He build everything using mingw32 from linux.
I’ve created a jhbuild module set, and a .jhbuildrc file to automate
win32 building, Ivan Wong has been doing an excellent work, but it’s
hard to interact with him, and some changes needs to be done in the
installer to allow flexibility for third party packagers and developers
I’ve realized that you have released a bundled installer similar that
one I did for pygtk a couple of months ago.
I’m interested in start some kind of coordination and feedback with the
people working on other bindings, right now, I’m working with another
(wasabi on irc.gimp.org), to create .wix xml scripts that would allow us
create Gtk+ .msi installers, checkout the bzr repository to take a
at his work on this.
This would allow version resolving issues, and also would allow to embed
Gtk+ as a msi module (msm) in other installers.
I think that a coherent and coordinated way to package and distribute
and its bindings on windows would be a huge win for everyone.
Any input on this would be much appreciated.
