SDL 2.0 Conversion Status?

Anthony Walter-3
It would seem that SDL 2.0 is going to be released in May, and is a complete rewrite which is incompatible with SDL 1.2. It seems to add a lot of functionality and I believe Valve's steam box is going to be based on SDL 2.0.

My question is, has anyone done any work on SDL 2.0 with Free Pascal? If so have you contributed your C header conversion online anywhere? If not, I could write a conversion but would need a little assistance afterwards in creating/contributing to an OSS repository and learning how to accept patches/collaberate.

I don't know of any SDL 2.0 conversion (though that doesn't mean
anything :P ), but if you do it yourself you could try whether h2pas
(provided with FPC) can handle the header files correctly (it could be -
depending on the header - that you need to comment out a few things, but
normally it should help quite a bit).

Regards,
Sven
