It seems that Jay 'Eraserhead' Felice <jfelice@xxxxxxxxxxxx> was the guy doing the python port. But seeing that is last check-in was in 2001, I would simply ignore the changes. The python code could be branched since it seems it will never be updated, we could:
- branch the current HEAD to b0-17-python and not use it anymore.
- update the b0-16 branch with the latest code of the current HEAD without the python code.
- promote the b0-16 branch to HEAD.
- go the 1.0 :) I hate 0.x version numbers :)
Otherwise, we could simply add
#define g_malloc malloc
#define g_free free
in tn5250-private.h in the b0-16 branch just to have much less discrepancy between the branches. For instance, the only differences in macro.c between the branches are allocation functions. This doesn't need to be. I'm willing to do the g_ adding to the b0-16 branch. As you can see, I have some time to put on the project. But I'd prefer my first solution, i.e. create a new "stable" release soon and stop keeping unfinished (?) code indefinitely.
