gtkeyboard is looking for a maintainer. Although there are other onscreen keyboard applications, we'd like gtkeyboard to be the best! We believe it has a slightly different focus than others available. (It also needs to be updated for current GNOME libraries, GNU infrastructure, and so forth.)
If you're interested, please take a look at this general information about GNU packages and being a GNU maintainer, and then email email@example.com with a bit about your background and interest. Thanks!
GTKeyboard is an application written in C with the aid of the Gimp Toolkit. It is intended to help
users with physical disabilities to enter text into a simple editor,
as well as to help them use other X11 applications that require
keyboard input. GTKeyboard allows the user to press keys on an
onscreen keyboard that will either be entered into a simple text
editor that GTKeyboard provides, or into the application of choice
that the user specifies by clicking on the window. It has also been
used by people who have strange keyboard layouts, and by people who
for one reason or another cannot use a keyboard with the machine in

Here is a small list of GTKeyboard's features, as of the current release:
Documentation up to this point has been a bit sparse, but it's coming along, and it does its best to describe the features of GTKeyboard and the different things you can do with it to get the job done. All the documentation that is available with GTKeyboard comes with the distribution, so if you download the full source package, then you will get just about everything there is to get.
