I'm really interested in this project.  GWT is a key part of the development strategy where I work, and is the main reason why we stick with Java.  Scala+GWT would mean that Scala was available for us to evaluate for all future projects.  So, is Scala+GWT still under development?

As far as I know, all key contributors are currently busy working to get Scala 2.10 out in the next few/days weeks.
So if you don't get an answer immediately, try and ping after 2.10 is shipped. With the new direction/leadership of GWT, it is certainly possible that improvements to the GWT will now be merged faster, so that using Scala-GWT will get easier.

  1. Thank you for the fast response.  It's certainly encouraging.

Regarding the change in GWT management, I particularly anticipate the
change to using Git.

The next step for Scala+GWT is to consolidate and submit for review
our patch on the GWT side. To do that, we need a current version of
GWT in git. And to do *that*, we need one of:

1. The current maintainer of our GWT->Git export finds a chance to update it.
2. Someone makes a new GWT->Git export.
3. GWT itself switches to Git.

The GWT issuetracker does not list any request to switch to Git:
http://code.google.com/p/google-web-toolkit/issues/list?can=1&q=git

Maybe you might want to open one?

There is an "official but trial only" Gerrit repo setup here:

https://gwt-review.googlesource.com/

With the caveat that it hasn't been blessed as official because they
might re-run the svn->git export a few more times to tweak which
directories/jars/plugins/etc. are included (I don't know the details).
And so Perforce is still the master.

It's been a slow process, but the official cut over should happen
"sometime". I would assume we might as well wait to rebase scala-gwt
changes on top of the official git repo, once it happens.

I don't follow the GWT issue tracker, but there's been talk on the
mailing list recently about moving GWT to git. This is the most
recent thread, which seems to indicate the switch will happen Real
Soon Now:

https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups=#!searchin/google-web-toolkit/git/google-web-toolkit/98eYkah88eQ/CTpwtcK0GRQJ

So 3) may be the way.
