Yes, qooxdoo is considered seriously and it will probably be toolkit of choice
to create many parts of SWAT. SOC project will probably focus a bit more on
ejs interface for libnet functions which is where I'm going to work closely
with our student. This is the first thing needed to work further on GUI. There
should be enough time to do it.

Thanks, Derrell. I'll have a look at the new version, as I'm particularly
interested in this way of building GUI for samba management. Does this mean
there're couple of branches with only one being actually developed ?

What are these for ? I mean, I've had a glance over the web of what is it,
but nothing more really.
