As another newbie, I second this. I've been searching the web for GUI-
based Scheme source code and haven't found much. I have the source
code for DrScheme, but it's such a large project that I have
difficulty making sense of it.

I remember a thread on this mailing list where someone talked about a
community effort to create example programs showing GUI code in
context. I believe it would be a real benefit to the community to
create such a resource. Maybe the lack of such a resource is the cause
for my inability to find GUI-based Scheme source code in the first

I have an extensive background as a technology writer/editor (BYTE
magazine, Apple Computer) and would be interested in writing
documentation to explain GUI code that someone else has written. It
would be great for someone to devise a list of sample programs that,
together, would get a beginner up and started writing GUI-based Scheme
programs. Then various people could commit to writing individual
programs and documenting them. If anybody's interested in this idea,
please let me know.
