Subject: [Gimp-user] Press pack requests

Hi all,

The 2.0 release is getting closer, and there are still some thing missing from
the press pack we want to send out.

- Could native english speakers who have a few minutes please look at the
"What's new in GIMP 2.0" page (http://wiki.gimp.org/gimp/WhatsNew) and correct
any grammar problems?

The document starts with a TODO note that hopefully will be removed

User Interface section of the document
(hrrm relative link doesn't seem to work).

"Be careful, though, not to use existing keyboard accelerator sequences.
What will happen is that you will get the new keybinding you have
requested and the old one will quietly and without warning be removed and
no longer have that keybinding.

(the next sentence 'probably' needs to be changed and as it mentions
replacing the menurc it would be much more helpful if it clearly stated
what exactly you replace it with and how, that is you can replace it by
removing menurc and renaming ps-menurc to menurc)

The section 'Other Improvements' has an item  [WHAT OTHER IMPORTANT
THINGS] that should be removed.  Perhaps replace it with a link to the
full changelog?

I cannot see any grammatical errors but that doesn't mean there aren't any
all that is really needed is a little editorial cleanup.

However as a user I'm fascinated by part of the closing statement
"Gimp can already do many things that are difficult or impossible with
Photoshop" and I would love if the author or anyone else could elaborate
on this.  It would make a very good pulicity piece to accompany the
release notes.

- high-res screenshots of The GIMP showing new features are welcome. Examples of
the kind of screenshots which are interesting are here:

weird. mozilla (at the top of the browser tab) says the following
screenshot is PNG

What's this?

Be honest.

Is this true of every board? Even Halliburton?

1.  Will TGF have members?  I am talking about members with voting
privledges, like I described above.  (my vote is yes, btw)


2.  Should the membership be paid?   (my vote is yes, for like $50 a
year or some toher small amount.  It helps for tax purposes).

Why not - this is also common in France. That means setting up paypal I
guess... Although the GNOME foundation have a membership policy which fits in
better with the Open Source model - there is a membership committee, which
considers applications for membership on a case-by-case basis based on
participation in the community. Membership is reconsidered every 3 years, and is

3.  Should the membership have additional rights?

Aside from voting in the board? Meh...

It would be useful to know who is interested in accepting the
responsibilites of being a board member (or officer).

Me. But a board can only work if the developers and the board work together 
towards the same goals, so to speak. If the board and the developers are in 
conflict, it'll bomb, or it'll be a PR disaster.
