This morning I placed some code in the MacPorts subversion repository  
for a GUI for MacPorts.

The GUI is currently named Pallet. I'll write an explanation of the  
name later.

The code is at https://svn.macosforge.org/repository/macports/users/ 

Please feel free to check it out, run it, fix it, and commit the  
fixes or submit tickets (assigned to rhwood at macports.org) against it.

There is a portfile for Pallet, and it checks out, builds, and  
installs, but fails to run.

*	Crashes on start when run outside xcode.
*	Can only run port sync or port selfupdate as of now.
*	Does not know the status of ports.
*	Displays incomplete and truncated port information.
*	Really really immature.
*	Needs new application icon.
*	Log output needs formatting for legibility.
*	Gets confused when a port has a zero-length or missing  
long_description (I think I fixed all 3 ports that caused this  
problem--since the long_description is a required field per man
