As mentioned in other replies, there is nothing in gimp's dependency on gegl and babl that would *require* gimp to be GPL3 too. However, I have been suggesting moving to GPL3 on irc about 5 times and just never got around writing a mail to gimp-developer. So finally, I hereby suggest to move to GPL3 asap. Comments from any developers appreciated. ciao, --mitch _______________________________________________ Gimp-developer mailing list Gimp-developer@lists.XCF.Berkeley.EDU https://lists.XCF.Berkeley.EDU/mailman/listinfo/gimp-developer
