I'd like to have a go at building PyGtk for Windows. And doing whats necessary to build an official version. I've installed Visual Studio express 2008, and have the latest PyGtk from Git.
The catch is that I have no experience in Visual Studio, only in building open source apps from commandline with gcc.
I'm pretty keen to see an up to date version of PyGtk available for Windows, if I can get some direction on how to get started building it, perhaps this could lead to a release.
I have to admit that I'm slightly reluctant to become a maintainer of PyGtk forever as I tend to do little bits on lots of different projects, but I'll certainly be up for building and testing the Windows PyGtk for a couple of versions at least.
My main motivation is to have modern versions of PyGtk and other libraries that shoebot needs available.
Any direction on building this with VS would be welcome, as I don't know what to do with it, and could find no documentation on building PyGtk with it.
