i have been working on some of the things on this list.  i am curious
what others have accomplished towards fullfilling this reasonable

i am currently working on the Preferences dialog and am in need for some
sane words to describe how to set the units globally.  i realize it was
discussed on this mail list, however i am finding it difficult to
concisely explain how to set the units globally in the way a user could
understand and in a way that is actually effective globally.

i have two different documents describing how to change the gimps docks
and tabs; a short description and a long one.

the shorter version:
the longer version:

>  - customizing the splash image

in addition to the requests on this list, i wrote about how to configure
the gimps gtkrc to adjust the plug-in preview size here:


i am open to corrections and suggestions and/or i will be happy to put
the urls to everyone elses effort to fullfill the requests found on this
list from these pages.

i am really stuck understanding how the new gimp handles units globally,
perhaps it is a condition of too much information.  a nice concise user
friendly explanation of how it works now and what we get from this
change would help me (and others).
