What does that mean?  There was no discussion and no announcement about
that.  Before anything is done, can we have a bit more information (and
discussion, if possible) about what is going to happen?

Yes, sending an unexpected announcement during the week-end is probably
not the best way to communicate with those who are usually not on the
'net at that time.

But what is planned exactly?  It is difficult to send any ideas or needs
if there is no information about what is going to happen, why and when...

This is definitely too short, especially since there was no early warning
nor discussion on any of the mailing lists (AFAIK).

I won't be able to back up anything before Wednesday due to lack of time
and disk space, so I hope that nothing is going to happen today.  

Anyway, what is going to happen to Wilber?  What is going to happen to
the web site?  In the last few days, I spent some time updating several
pages, including the release notes for 1.2.4 and 1.2.5, the list of
mirrors (web and ftp) and the pages describing how to install the GIMP.
Do you mean that you want to remove the current web site without any
discussion and without any planning?  The last discussion on the
gimp-web list was in April (except for two messages that I CCed to the
list in May, but that was not a discussion).  What is happening now,
all of a sudden?

What does this mean?
