And, probably, use the glib even loop in QT


All (?) Linux distros have built Qt to use glib for event loop for years. That's the way to integrate with gnome stuff.
Collaboration is needed. Not shoehorning your methods into someone else's toolkit.


What is needed is *action*, not planning or discussing about planning. For whatever canonical is bashed for these days, you can at least trust that they are *doing*, not debating.

I don't think it's beyond the realms of sensibility that getting some buy-in from the developers of the software that you hope to use before hand would be a good idea for everyone.

Canonical has ended up 'doing' a lot of things over the years......and not being terribly successful at getting others to join in.
