In addition to the other replies I am going to add that there is a lot of
stuff happening in this area for open source systems in general. As Sven
has pointed out there is work underway to add CM awareness to GIMP and I am
sure that any help you could provide would be very welcome by those
developing GIMP and the GIMP user community. In fact the current GIMP
development snapshot has some CM functionality but as Sven said needs more
In addition there is CM related work going on with X.Org, CUPS, CinePaint,
enblend, Hugin, LPROF, ArgyllCMS, Scribus, Krita, ImageMagick and many other
applications. If you want to keep informed about what is happening with CM
for OSS projects I would recommend that you subscribe to the OpenICC mailing
list. Developers from all of the above projects are active on that mailing
list as well as many others.
