Decision? There is no decision. I admit that I didn't expect this
reaction but the mail that started all this wasn't meant as a
proclamation. If I had known that you would all go bezerk about the
idea, I would have still asked for it, but perhaps differently.

Decision? Well, we should come to one. Better sooner than later.

Perhaps I told one or even two people involved in the computer
magazine business about it when I tried to get some support for the
conference this summer. I'm sorry but I need to sell this conference
at the moment and everyone seems flat broke. We really could need some
good marketing and instead you guys take this as an opportunity for
flames?  Please come back with arguments as soon as you have settled

I did that since Marc suggested and I spent some time with the
results. I didn't make up any scientific statistics but I got to the
impression that most the hits for "gimp 2.0" are caused by "gimp" used
on the same page as "gtk+-2.0". What exactly do you want to prove by
116,000 hits on google?

BTW: Yes, indeed you do. What exactly makes you think you don't?

Oh shit, I got one wrong. But wait, I'll put "Image templates" in as a
new feature that I forget to listen.
