There is a broader point too though. I would like to encourage the idea that the feature extraction part of the GIFT should be in some way pluggable. When adding a collection, the user should be able to specify which feature extraction system he/she wants to use, and there could be multiple ones shipped with the GIFT, or others could be available from third party sites.

I guess that this would mean that (at least) an attribute would have to be added to the collection element in the gift-config.mrml file so that the system could be aware of whether features are comensurate for different collections.

Perhaps I should devote some real time to this this year.

BTW, has anyone reported installing the GIFT on Mac OS X? I'm on a Powerbook G4 this year (though of course I can ssh into my AMD64 linux machine back in Australia if necessary). I don't have current access to a 32 bit i[3-6]86 box this year though, so I am not in a great position for doing "standard" development.
