gPS TODO & BUGS listing
as of version 0.7.3

TODO list

- Write polling code (both local and networked) for other
  Un*xes. Solaris is enqueued, but I need a Solaris box with 
  GTK+, which my university is being unable to provide
  (they have Sparcs, have Solaris, but the stoooopid admins
  can't get GTK+ correctly installed)

- Finish the top-based rgpsp (which is not as almost done as
  I thought it was)

- Make rgpsp provide information about signals and process
  flags.

- Show CPU gauge for each processor on SMP machines (currently gPS
  shows the average of all processors). (this item is very unlikely
  to get accomplished)

BUGS (or: Features I Don't Like)

- Some rgpsp messages will still go to stderr in daemon mode,
  because they're in the machine-specific files. To be fixed
  soon.

- Some of the flags are badly documented (because I don't know enough
  about the kernel to document them better). 

- The free memory reported by different pollers may be different
  due to the different interpretation of Buffers and Cache, among
  other things. Read the gps(1x) man page for details, but this won't
  be easily solved.

- It has been reported that the network watch doesn't work on
  PPC/Linux, but we have not been able to trace down the problem.
