1) make the file chooser dialog native. At the moment this is disabled since on the mac there is a difficulty: a native  file open dialog do not allow to type the file name. You have to take different actions in the case of a file load or a file save and the old texmacs api didn't differentiate the two possibilities. Now Joris has made some changes and when the dialog has to be created we know if it is for a load or a save, so that in principle we can choose the right native widget. Relevant lines in Graphics/Gui/widget.hpp are

widget file_chooser_widget (command cmdstring typebool save);
  // file chooser widget for files of a given 'type';
  // for files of type "image", the widget includes a previsualizer for images
  // 'save' indicates whether we intend to save the file

This looks easy enough, so let's say I tinker with this for a while. What "coding practices" should I adhere to? I can see how you like indentation, spacing and function layout, but:
  • Is it ok to create a new couple of files .hpp .cpp for every class? I like it that way, but I've seen that's not always the case in TM.

Personally I tend to make a new class file only if the class has several members and/or methods. For the moment you can do as you please, I will take care of porting to my style. In the future if there will be more people having access right to svn we should set up some policies.
  • Is it ok if I correct indentation, style and typos as I review the code? Of course following your preferences, which I reckon are different from mine.

It is ok to improve existing code (also by adding comments) but I would prefer separate patches for these "cosmetic" changes. Not to be mixed with "functional" modifications. I do not know if this will be easy with svn. I usually have different source dirs for different kind of modifications I'm developing on the source.

  • Is it ok to add comments to the classes and methods? It's a jungle in there and some markers might help others, if I get them right, that is.
Of course, see above.

  • In order to have meaningful updates to the repository, I'd have to prepare small patches. Do I send them to the list or to you?
Please send them to me (and eventually to Joris). You do not need zip for small patches.

  • How is localization implemented? À la QT or otherwise?

TeXmacs performs localization for its strings, other strings which are created on the qt side independently of texmacs should be localized by qt (I wrote a translator which uses texmacs internal converter, see QTMTranslator in qt_gui.cpp)
