The GEAS class definition has no real documentation that I am aware of. 
GNUe Forms language has some outdated stuff in the definitive guide.  I
am starting to see documentation needs overhauling.  I am on it I

We would LOVE to see you use GNUe.  As the more people using, testing
and pushing for bugs makes the software cycle go that much quicker for

Our ncurses stud (arno) has been very ill.  He is gonna be back on it
soon.  If he is not well enough to fix, jamest will bang out support for
it in v0.1.0. (this would be our first real release)  It WILL be
maintained in the future.

I have requested that Alejandro create a Module Proposal from the
Template.  This will fully explain a lot.

Please bear in mind we have always wanted templating for vertical
industry.  So maybe it would be better to have a hostipal template than
merge two things that dont belong.  (I am not sure if this is the case
just theorizing)  As the idea of GNUe is to be a tool with apps not be a
huge application that is bloated.

CVS is always downloadable.  If you cant get it let me know and I can
email you recent stable (well for dev releases) tarballs of things.

If you want it as a GNUe module I ask you check out the Module Proposal
Template.  It is basically fill in the blanks documentation.

I can and will look into putting up an interactive FAQ system. One that
I have been using at work and dont mind too much.

Yes GNUe originally looked at using/extending Glade and its formats, but
they have lots of gnomisms. :)  There is no converter currently, but it
would probably be easy to do.
