Well, I certainly am not willing to do a _new_ Gimp web site. I meant
it when I said I am willing to do _some_ work. Re-designing the web
site not only does not fit my definition of 'some work', it would
also seem that parts of the web site need updating now, rather than
waiting for a new design to come along.

'The work' being? I assume you are not talking about simple
maintenance, I take it that is what the people behind
[EMAIL PROTECTED] do.

I am sorry, no. I do not have enough time for that right now. I am
willing to help out, but not in such an important way. When I
volunteered, I was thinking more along the lines of helping to make
sure the site is up-to-date, i.e. that it mentions the most recent
GIMP releases, does not run a 'montly competition' of which the last
installment was in 1999, et cetera.
