Subject description: i would do it but i don't know how
 

so i realize there is already a gnome sfs but it seriously needs an update. i attempted to do this myself but after i got all the files from the ftp site i kinda was at a loss. so if someone can post a new gnome sfs or tell me what to do it would be most appreciated.

ok so update i learned some things and have gotten a version of git and some instructions on how to build the latest version (aka 3.0) and i also picked up a copy of jhbuild which i am using to build etc etc. i just figured out how to use spot so i can actually use jhbuild (it will not run in root whatever you do)
so i am getting close sort of. the tricky part is after im done getting the files and such and building, how can i make it into a sfs file so everyone can use it? i am aware of the tools that come with puppy and i haven't really done any research on them but i am more talking about am i going to need to put dependencies or other things in there to make it work?

ok so after some head bashing on this i am kinda lost again. i got to about here.

i run jhbuild sanitycheck as spot in terminal
it tells me

/root/.local/bin/jhbuild: line 3: import: command not found
/root/.local/bin/jhbuild: line 4: import: command not found
/root/.local/bin/jhbuild: line 5: import: command not found
/root/.local/bin/jhbuild: line 7: USE_CHECKOUT_SRC: command not found
/root/.local/bin/jhbuild: jhbuild: line 10: syntax error near unexpected token `0,'
/root/.local/bin/jhbuild: jhbuild: line 10: ` sys.path.insert(0, '/root/NewDir/jhbuild')'
what am i doing wrong?
