As posted to C.O.L.A.
I'm glad to release a public announcement concerning the GtkBuffet. This is a collection of Gtk-based applications and libraries which I have set up a few months ago. Besides a mirror of Gtk, Gimp and Gnome the GtkBuffet consists of user contributed programs and libraries. Most of them were announced on Gtk or Gnome lists before. Gtk is the Gimp Tool Kit and represents a modern and free graphical widget set for X11. Its most famous use is the Gimp as well as Gnome. This archive is intended to be a general repository for Gtk-based software of various kinds. Its purpose is to provide a canonical way to find software related to Gtk. The regular archive is found at ftp://metalab.unc.edu/pub/Linux/X11/gtkbuffet/ or ftp://ftp.uni-erlangen.de/pub/Linux/MIRROR.gtkbuffet/ You'll find the archive of Gtk-based applications in the directory 'apps' and the collection of additional libraries and widget sets in the 'libs' directory. The archive is currently maintained semi-automatically by Martin Schulze <[email protected]> and his Sentinel. If there are packages missing (I'm sure there are), please drop me a line so I can add them. The original address for the entire archive is ftp://ftp.infodrom.north.de/pub/unix/gtkbuffet/ I'd like some common sites to mirror the apps and libs directories in order to provide the archive on some bigger sites with better network connectivity.
