The primary aim of the Gtk+2 panel project is to provide a panel that reuses whatever is available (if it is not overkill) in the obvious way, such as subclassing GtkWidget instead of implementing applets, or by using a GtkBuilder file instead of defining a new format to customize the panel. This approach gives some additional advantages for free: you can use common tools in uncommon ways. Above all, you can use Glade to design your own panel. All the dependencies apart from GTK+ are (and hopefully will be) optional.
checkcopy is a GUI tool to copy the files and directories to some destination while creating checksums and/or verifying them. It reads all the checksum files, then reads in each file to copy it to the destination. If a checksum is present for the file, it will be verified, otherwise the checksum is written out to disk.
