I had the same problem with this that Gilles had with kdenlive - the ui 
version was too high for my machine :-)

However, changing the version number to 3.1 allowed me to compile and run with 
no ill effects.

Looks fine so far, keep going ;-)

I would suggest that you put your project into cvs somewhere (sourceforge or 
savanah being the most popular).

I do not know that much about the dvd authoring process - exactly how much 
overlap is there with video editing? The interface looks quite different from 
Kdenlive, so I am wondering how deep the integration would be - I mean, would 
it actually be easier if qdvdauthor is kept as a separate application? What 
are the advantages for/against?
