if things develop in the same direction I will probably have more time
to work on Gcmd in the next months... Lets see. ^_^

Oh nooo, that's a pity. But luckily I already started coding away at
least from libgnomeui. It is still some effort to be done, I cannot say
how much time I will need to complete. I think I completed ~20% of it
now. Libgnome-2.0 should follow.

That's right. There is still hope as the gnome developer documentation
has some migration guides for the deprecated libgnomeui. There are some
examples given, but I have to dig a bit, it takes some time... For
libgnome-2.0 I did not have a look. Volunteers are welcome! :)

There was one guy who showed interest in creating a flatpack for Gcmd,
but I did not receive an update on his work.

Sidenote: Fedora still provides a package of Gnome Commander:
