Thanks. Unfortunately, GTypist development has slowed down a bit.
To quote from TODO (see
If you are interested in helping for [...], we will be glad to have you
in the development team!
We also plan to include a way to change the lesson file (*.typ) from
within gtypist (using a <X>: command) for the 2.10 release
(which will include your patch one way or another).
We also look forward to your suggestions for 2.10!
Thanks, Cheers and Best Regards,
