Hi,

They must be able to build current CVS.

This should not be a prerequisite. Someone who knows the details of
compiling software can learn how to build from CVS in a couple of days
(for info: I say a couple of days because there are *lots* of
prerequisites, and because using CVS itself is not obvious for someone
who has never done so). Don't set the bar too high.

Cheers,

I wasnt clear on this. Wasnt realy refering to CVS as in the tool. Just that they can get the latest source code and compile. A lot of people use Linux and it shouldent be a problem, but if somebody is used to MSVS6 on Win32, it might take a while to get it working. (not sure of the gimps build files on win32, only ever used linux)

A doc wiki on how to get the latest gtk/gimp etc compiling on win32 would be usefull.

I wrote up this doc for win32 blender users on howto, download, install dev tools and build the gimp as well as debugging with Mingw.
http://mediawiki.blender.org/index.php/BlenderDev/SconsRefactoring#Scons.2FMingw.2FWin32_tutorial

This would have definetly saved time for GSOC since people had trouble with blender builds under win32 (theres about 5 different build methods, and not all are well maintained)
Does the gimp have somting similar?

Wouldent mind compiling the gimp for my laptop under win32 even :)
