Is there anything I should know to replace GnomeDruid with GtkAssistant?

Hi Tao,

thanks for this research. To me, this sounds like it would require  
significant efforts to get back into a source code state that compiles  
on CentOS 5.5. IMHO this effort gives only very little gain. Hence,  
IMHO we should acknowledge that our support of this distro has been  
dropped already, and hence we should increase our required gtk et al  
versions accordingly.

These are already three completely unrelated issues, and as you  
correctly indicate, there might be more of those still waiting in the  
code. Again, I think we should just acknowledge the fact we don't  
support the old distro anymore.

Best Regards,
