I would also like to take part in the development of the Mousepad. The
fact is that I want to completely switch to xfce, but I can not do
this for several reasons. First mousepad has very little opportunity,
so I have to use gedit or other editor, because of what has derazhat
gnome libraries. Why mousepad slowly evolving and there are so few
opportunities, why not highlight the source code, simultaneous work
with many documents, the theme editor and much more? Why? This is no
one to do or for some other reason. I am ready and have a great desire
to improve the mousepad, but don `t know whether you need it?
