 branches).

That's a perfect description of what we've already experienced some taste of 
with the Windows build.

 Unfortunately, I think this gives some Windows users the impression
 that the Linux developers are snobby, unhelpful and arrogant.

I'm sure it does.

For my part, it's some mixture of being totally ignorant of how to do anything 
on Windows, and totally unsympathetic to the Windows user who wants to whine 
about free-as-in-beer software.  They're running Windows!  All the best 
commercial stuff with years of professional development behind it is available 
for that platform.

If they're cheap, that's not my problem.  If they're broke, they should 
probably just switch to Linux, and their unwillingness to do that is not my 
problem.

So maybe I am unhelpful, snobby, and arrogant.  I just don't have any use for 
those people.  I dealt with a lot of them when I was a Linux crusader, and I 
fart in their general direction.

Ok well, I'm going to carry on occasionally merging from trunk as I wish and 
will pop out another Windows build at some point soon.  For the moment, and to 
make it easier for me to manage, I've created a page:

http://www.xyglo.com/rosegarden-for-windows/

I'll post announcements here and keep monitoring the usual lists but this is a 
bit easier for me.

Re: [Rosegarden-user] One Further Thought on RGD Files

 It looks like 7 years ago the developers of Rosegarden had indeed been
 developing such a script.
 
 A fellow by the name of Pedro Lopez-Cabanillos was working on exactly this
 problem with a perl script called ins2rgd.pl  Somehow it seems the project
 simply vanished or lost interest.

Actually I just checked and that script is still included in the current
rosegarden source code tarball, you can find it under /scripts/.

Here are some instructions on how to use it:

http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.audio.rosegarden.user/5102

If the rgd file format and the ins file format hasn't changed since 2005 ,
then the script should still work fine.

Let us know how you get on with it.
