If someone wants to volunteer to provide scons support for CinePaint, I
wouldn't turn it down. Personally, I prefer cons because I do more Perl
than Python.

I've adopted orphaned projects before. CinePaint evolved from a
forgotten branch of GIMP that project never released.

CinePaint is popular advanced image editing software used by pro
photographers and studio visual effects artists.

Are you interested in learning an alternative to autotools? Cons is a
simple widely-used, but not well-known build system based on Perl. Some
knowledge or interest in learning cons, Perl, and autotools necessary.
Fun project for someone who likes Perl and is interested in build systems.
