one thing that i didn't mean was to ruffle any feathers. sorry. i am
going to go crazy if the newish site doesn't get moved. There is a
whole bunch of disc space (right now) and if we wait and plan and work
through what will be done with it, it will never get done.
i asked for ideas and such. at least i tried. for instance, maybe
someone would like wilber to mirror gentoo. i don't really know. also,
i know so little of the possibilities.
three things that i am very very interested in is moving the site, the
wiki and i would really like to have a gimp organization blog working.
i am trying to write a plug-in for gimp that will produce the pages for
when a good plan gets sent about, you miss better ways maybe.
this is the time to mention anything you ever wished for from wilber, i
guess. then some discussion about your wishes can happen.
there are a few sites that need a contributor.gimp.org, imo. there are
probably some i have missed.
no one really gave me very much to go on, i am passing along everything
i got for this.

from gimp-1.2 needs to be put into
http://mmmaybe.gimp.org/docs/gimp-docs/ and the developer doc need to
be put here: http://mmmaybe.gimp.org/docs/dev-docs/. truthfully, by the
time i got them to build, i forgot what i was doing. i might have
offended some along the way also. one person cannot remember
but this is gimp stuff, there is plenty of time, but the sooner the
