a couple months ago, i had posted about the possibility of getting
CinePaint upgraded in Archlinux. my life got really busy and i put it
on the back-burner and 'almost' forgot.

the Arch guy said there isn't any development going on with
CinePaint...is it slowly becoming a dead project??? (i hope not). if
anyone knows, please feel free to drop a line

which contains such things as patches applied, compile method, etc.
Could you possibly provide this build file as an attachment or as
Also, on the cinepaint-devel list, someone has indicated several
code changes for the cinepaint source. There are no patches but
maybe some users would be interested in these changes.
