The reason is simple. There is not enough disk on the old server to host the new site. I'm surprised nobody has taken the time to address some of the issues that were punted for later (lack of a good Basics tutorial comes to mind). Also, with 2.0 coming out somewhat soon, porting things to 2.0 would be a good idea. None of these things require the site to be moved over first. > It is not as if people dislike the new site; the only thing that > remains is replacing the old site with it. There are voices of dissent. Also the news stuff is still broken since the move away from SSI (which was a bad decision imo, SSI has a negligible server load and apache is really not that hard to set up) -Yosh _______________________________________________ Gimp-developer mailing list [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://lists.xcf.berkeley.edu/mailman/listinfo/gimp-developer
