  • For example, the original program is Xlib based, and I port it to GTK3.
  • What about porting my old gtk2-based app to gtk3?

Are either of these two eligible for entrance into the App Showdown?

You can reuse small bits of old code, but the requirement is that your app must be created from scratch, so a GTK2 port to GTK3 would not qualify, as it would give you an unfair advantage over other participants who are starting something new.

That said, there are lots of good ideas for new apps, feel free to pick one up!
