currently the plan is to have a splash contest for gimps tenth
anniversary which, as federico and mitch pointed out should be on
November 21 this year
i am not certain of the beginning and end date. i am also uncertain of
which release the winning splash will be featured in -- i am certain
that there is room for more than one splash. there is the about dialog
and perhaps as other so far unpublished easter eggs.
this would be a pre-announcement. one thing we were talking about and
almost everyone involved with the project so far seems to agree with is
that at the risk of affecting the quantity of splash submissions, we are
going to ask for a tutorial to accompany the submitted images. the
submitted tutorials should be loaded at the time of the submission as a
gzipped (.gz or tar.gz or .tgz) or zipped (.zip) file and does not have
to be more than text or html (if you are able to do that) and perhaps
some intermediate images and a final xcf.
if it looks as a cheap way to get good content for gimp web sites, well
i guess that looks about the right way then.
feel free to share your thoughts about the contest and the new
requirements with me directly or perhaps on the gimp-user mail list.
and everyone, get out your gimp and start making those splash you have
been thinking about!
