Subject RE: [Request] Make gump build directories browsable
Date Sun, 14 Mar 2004 18:52:07 GMT
Thanks Stefano. I have been one of the first adopter of Gump (I have
even used it on a big project at work! :-)). I do not wish to depart.
However, in the past I had enough energy to keep fixing things even it
wasn't easy (like I had to install Gump on my machine, etc).
Unfortunately I have shifted my interest to some other areas and I don't
have much time to invest in learning Gump itself.

I do understand that the Gump community is working towards addressing
these issues so I'll be patient! :-)

Leo has kindly offered to create an account for me on his machine. I
think I'll take the offer so that I can try debugging the Cactus gump
