The long term solution would be to use the Quartz backend of GTK

porting Inkscape to GTK3 and ironing out all the bugs that will cause.
Nonetheless, it appears, at this point, that this is something that really
needs to be done since the upstream gtkmm developer has indicated that he
considers gtkmm-2.24 an "ancient deprecated version" that he doesn't care
maintain further and has specifically put Inkscape on notice to port to
the current GTK3 version ASAP.
I note that the current experimental GTK3 code builds on Mac (using MacPorts
at least) using either the X11 or quartz backends and seems to function at
a basic level although I am not an expert Inkscape user by any means.
What is the official status of this GTK3 port and what will it take to bring it
up to snuff as the preferred build? Is there currently any concerted effort
in this regard and if so who is/are the lead developer(s) for this effort?
If someone wanted to help, where would he/she start?
Sorry for my ignorance concerning the current state of affairs.
