Description

Dear Sylpheed developers,

considering that porting Sylpheed to GTK+ 3 has not begun yet according to the following feature request:

http://sylpheed.sraoss.jp/redmine/issues/123

and considering that quite a few other developers are thinking of or are already porting their applications to Qt, instead of GTK+ 3, see for example:

I am wondering if porting Sylpheed to Qt might be a better decision than porting it to GTK+ 3?

Regards
