Benchmarks "A number of search engines are available for the Gnome and KDE desktop environments, many based around the open source Lucene search engine. It would be tremendous if we could adopt one of these search engines for the Gnome platform, so we can provide the type of integrated search experience for our users that they really need, irrespective of which distort they are using. So to help in this assessment we have carried out a comparison of four different Unix based indexers [.pdf]."

but g(nome)lib is definitely a dependency

As I said it depends on glib, but it definitely does not depend on gnome-lib, two very different libraries.

From someone as well informed as you I'd almost consider it flamebait ;)

hmmm. i'm getting confused now. i thought for a long time glib wasn't related to gnome, then something came up (don't remember what, see my nick) which apparently made me think it WAS gnome-related...

now you say it isn't. hmmm ;)
and google says:
GLib is the low-level core library that forms the basis of GTK+ and GNOME.

so, who's right? you or google?

I am, of course! ;)

glib is definitely a core dependecy of GNOME, it is the GTK+ platform abstraction library.

However it has move to a general purpose C utility library a long time ago, several projects not related to GNOME use as well, it is always packaged separately, etc.
