Marc, there has been no mobbing going on (despite your continous
ranting perhaps). There are two reasons for moving gimp-perl into a
(1) It doesn't work with GIMP-1.3 and noone seemed to work on getting
this fixed. Since we want to release soon, we were forced to do
something. Having gimp-perl in a seperate module allows to have it
maintained independently of the main GIMP package.
(2) There are a couple of severe problems with the build that have
been outstanding for a very long time and noone did anything about
them. In particular I'm speaking of:
I expect that some of these problems are more easily fixed in a
separate module since integration of the perl build environment
into the GIMP build environment has proven to be non-trivial.
