I'd like to give an update on the list of open issues that I posted
two days ago...

> - gimp.spec should not be in the tarball


> - need a final splash image

I've opened a bug report for this
Got no feedback yet but I am not (yet) worried...

> - review debug output

Has been addressed and seems completed.

I haven't received any feedback yet, so I assume that it is working
for everyone? The debug output should probably stay for now. It might
be useful in case that we address the i18n issues with the help system.

I've explained this in more detail in other mails and it seems that we
probably want to change the install location of the gimp-help.xml
files. This should happen before 2.0 gets out. So I'd like to treat
this a bug that should be fixed before 2.0 but it should not be
considered a blocker. If we don't get around to it, we will have to
live with the way it's done right now.

This is being tracked in http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=136996
