I don't know about the git / svn repository; but may I put something on
your bugfix list :-)

while porting tangoGPS 0.9.3 to FreeBSD 7.0R and using it against the
gpsd on my FR I encountered that the IP addr (and port) of the gpsd is
hardcoded to (in src/main.c); tangoGPS should respect what the
user before has configured as host for the gpsd; it does know it from
the gconf config file but you have to go to the config-tab in tangoGPS
and press there the button to make use of this IP addr;


btw: this is really cool GPS when you traveling around with your Linux
or FreeBSD based laptop (for example with the small eeePC 900) and
having the FR as your GPS device, but the maps of tangoGPS on your bigger
laptop screen!
