Good. I have reassigned the task in your name.

Not required, but, it will be good to do so to see what has been made
available. Make sure you have usable Internet connectivity as it will
download packages.

No. There are differences. I will request Fedora Infrastructure for a
project repo (fedorahosted) where I will check-in dgc code, and you
can check-in your code changes.

Please try DGC first. The code is very old, and I have re-written the
build to keep it up-to-date with Fedora releases. You can get the
sources using:

  $ yumdownloader --source dgc

To extract the .src..rpm, use:

  $ rpm2cpio -idv dgc-0.98-3.fc12.src.rpm | cpio -idv

The GUI has been temporarily disabled in the code, which is where you
come in the picture!

There is an old documentation (2002) on the GUI here:

The objective would be to write the GUI with GTK+ API. You can refer
GTK+ tutorials, for a start (please try):

DGC was written by Oliver Kraus, who is not with Universität
Erlangen-Nürnberg [1] anymore. The current maintainer of the project
is Tobias Dichtl [2]. His line of scientific research is not the same
as that of DGC, but, he said he will be adding 'extended burst mode
synthesis support' this year.
