I hope to finish the session in my university at Saturday. So Saturday's
evening will be the starting point for my work on the GUI.

I think i will rewrite my simple GUI for John in Qt to learn Qt. Then it
will be fine to use your poc as a base. I have only one question about
it: is it under appropriate license? Last time i looked it it was under
GPL.

I think it will be great to try to cooperate. I do not know how to do it but i
would like to learn about it.

Github is ok for me. I used it particaping in JetDroid.
