Well my experiment is both successfull and not..
after i got python bindings for berkeley ( which installed
nicely ) and getting the latest CVS i did an import of a copy
of a ged file.
I was successfull importing it and seeing people in the family view and
the tree view.. but in the persons .. nothing showed up .
I mean it imported the whole thing families etc.. but i got
noone in the list..
I checked for the filter, tried everyone of them. no go.
I must be missing something ... but what ?
I dont see any errors that are other than GTK errors.
Im running Gnome jhbuild gnome28.modules CVS
I dont know.. ill try reimporting again..
If you got an idea , please feel free to leave me a message .\
