At the time I had your Mac at my office, I was mainly working on  
Python X2Go and the focus at that time was to get the Windows version  
working properly. I had a dream of a Mac port of PyHoca-GUI / Python  
X2Go, but the focus had to be put on something else at that time.

Also: I am not an enthusiastic Mac user. So the Mac OS X2Go Client is  
far from being of personal interest with me. Working on bug fixes  
would be more about working on the project's reputation. It would be  
more authentic if one of the people really enthusiastic about Mac OS  
would start working on patches.

@Stefan: Let's give it a try via VNC+SSH, but my feeling is that real  
hardware (optimal: a notebook that can be shoved under the table)  
might support bug fixing tremendously. Please send me login  
information. If you want to have a queue from me, please request it  
from me privately.
