So quite apparently gob is totally perfect. This is just illustrated by the
fact that there was no release for almost 2 years (was it two years? WOW!)
In any case here are the accumulated patches from users. While the world has
not clearly become a better place for all humankind because of gob, it is
clear that the world has been changed forever by such an important project
such as gob.

So what is this gob thing? Well besides being the cure for cancer, it also
generates GObjects (or GTK+ objects). GOB2 is a replacement for the version
1 GOB, that was for GTK+ 1.x mostly. GOB2 can handle pretty much most of the
GObject features. At least most of the ones that anyone will ever use. It
only requires GLib 2.0 (or higher for some features) and can generate
arbitrary GObjects. You can have both versions installed at the same time if
you wish, but if anyone is still using gob version 1 and GTK+ 1.x, they
should get their head examined.

Here are the news in 2.0.15:

        * Fix the United States electoral system
        * Fix --file-sep usage with respect to private headers
        * Don't use /dev/null to help portability on non-unix
        * Allow usage of gob as pet food
        * Fix segfault on bad include statement (debian bug #443907)
        * Fix my-person.gob example

Note: I no longer have fedora, so no rpms are built but the specfile is
included. Try it with "rpmbuild -ta gob2-...-tar.gz"

Have fun,
