and some additional sample scripts are in the works. Also, some documentation
is being written. Since Scott's e-mail message with the status of the project

The project is being developed on a machine running OS X and tested in Linux
(Fedora Core). It would be interesting to hear from anyone who tries it in a
If you have ever wanted to write scripts for GIMP using Ruby check out the
gimp-ruby module from CVS and build/install it.
