Hi Rafael,
you wrote only 2 emails and you got a response to one of them: I unable to
understand what is the problem...

About your emails:

In this case, it got no response.
I'm not a Win user, so I cannot help you. BTW there are very few developers
used to are on Windows OS, e.g. I've no idea on compiling QGis on Windows.

IMHO it's no reasonable talking about FOSS as well as you do and using Win
developing it.

 Here, I wrote on November 3:

Matthew replied to you explaining a lot of things about plugin developing.
Here your response:

*Thank you for your response Matt. I will try it.

*No other emails... It seems you solved the problem, but now you say that
problem is still there! Why you didn't reply again?
There are no magicians here...

One of the latest Hasan's email about python plugins and indentation errors
got >6 replies... And people wrote a lot of solutions.

But the very problem is that this thread it's just 4 hours old and your
email is just
3 hours old...
Furthermore the Hasan's email its not related to your previous emails, so
did you reply to this thread?

Here your message:
I have the same problems and I wrote many times to this list but I have not
good answers.*

You wrote:
1. "the same problems", untrue because the .pro file it's a different
2. "many times", untrue because it's just one (even through the .pro file
it's a
different problem)
3. "good answers" is enough different from "no answers"

Summary: maybe are you a troll?
IMHO yes. If you like to talk about gvSIG, go to its ML ;)

I think for community growth QGis (like the entire FOSS) is important for
> knowledge sharing.
Sure, but the knowledge sharing is not "You must share" but "I wanna share".
You cannot pretend someone helps you...

To ALL: sorry for both the noise and my long email. I hate trolls...
