TimeIT is a time tracker that works quietly almost without any interaction and still measures the time you are spending on several projects. The concept of this program is that tasks and projects are assigned to workspaces and while you are in those workspaces your projects are timed. It also has detection of idleness, editing of time records, and summary views grouped by day, week, month, and year.
The primary aim of the Gtk+2 panel project is to provide a panel that reuses whatever is available (if it is not overkill) in the obvious way, such as subclassing GtkWidget instead of implementing applets, or by using a GtkBuilder file instead of defining a new format to customize the panel. This approach gives some additional advantages for free: you can use common tools in uncommon ways. Above all, you can use Glade to design your own panel. All the dependencies apart from GTK+ are (and hopefully will be) optional.
