I fully agree with this. I'd like to be able to invest more time in
getting dgo in better shape than I already have but being in the middle
of my exams I really have a hard time finding enough time to even read
these mailing lists.

Anyways, the developer.gimp.org site is in GNOME CVS in gimp-web-devel
module and as with the GIMP itself patches are most welcome.

I've started a Developer FAQ and made the framework for adding articles
about GIMPCon, plug-in development etc. Simon has been very kind to give
his permission to include his paper on Script-Fu and plug-ins for The
GIMP on the site - but I haven't had the time to convert it yet.

Merging the two sites, wgo and dgo, would only clutter up the menu and
thus make the site very hard to navigate for new comers. I think that
wgo should continue to contain stuff for users such as tutorials,
downloads, HOWTOs etc. Let's keep all the interesting^Hdevelopers stuff
on dgo.
