No problem on the name, I'll come up with something. I just want the functionality. I also don't care who owns it. If
your project likes what I develop , you may offer to merge it in.
I don't mean to offend anyone one this list. However, it would help my discovery process of how to write this thing if
I could send some questions into this list. I'm planning on binding this to Nautilus. So I'll be querying people on
another project that did the vcs bindings into Nautilus..I don't have time to reinvent the wheel here ;-)
thanks for your understanding. ke han
