Please re-read what I wrote....  Did I write "pinfo"?   No, I wrote "yum
info".

So, let me do it for you....

It is a port

Now....read the "Description" from the above output....

The main thing I believe you want to know is that "(gnote)...is a port
of Tomboy to C++ and consumes fewer resources.

OK....Is that helpful?

You can even visit http://live.gnome.org/Gnote and
http://projects.gnome.org/tomboy/....

On http://live.gnome.org/Gnote you would see......

"Gnote is a port of Tomboy to C++.

It is the same note taking application, including most of the add-ins
(more are to come). Synchronization support is being worked on."

OK?
