Description: A C++ Wrapper for the GNU GLib, created by the GNOME developers.
Hmm, it's already in extras! (gtkmm24)
gtkmm24 != glibmm24 :)
However, glibmm24 was in there. I guess my searching didn't notice the packages. :(
Although off-topic to this bug, I believe that the packages shouldn't have the
'24' suffix. GNOME named the glibmm and gtkmm without the suffix, so why does
Red Hat add the suffix?
Right, I meant glibmm24. There are about 8 packages, though they all fall under
the denomination of 'gtkmm' (gtkmm.sourceforge.net).
The 24 suffix represents the API version (as in
/usr/lib/pkgconfig/glibmm-2.4.pc, 2.10 is the ABI version) and is there mostly
for historical reasons since we used to also package the older 2.0 APIs. I agree
we could get rid of the 24 suffix now, I'm just not sure it's worth the trouble.
