i am sorry. i dont get it. perhaps if you explain the need for sgml to build cvs gimp. there are other reasons to build gimp from cvs. these reasons are both obvious and yes, cumbersome also to go through here. gimp seemed to be easy and fun to work on and is in fairly good shape without this software all the years up until now. what could have possibly changed that now we all need to have the software that generates sgml before we can run a cvs version of a image manipulation application. it should not be cumbersome to explain how sgml helps this. thanks, carol _______________________________________________ Gimp-developer mailing list Gimpfirstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.xcf.berkeley.edu/mailman/listinfo/gimp-developer
