"Be careful, though, not to use existing keyboard accelerator sequences. [OR WHAT WILL HAPPEN?]" 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: http://jimmac.musichall.cz/stuff/private/gimp-2/html/index.xhtml http://developer.gimp.org/screenshots.htmlweird. mozilla (at the top of the browser tab) says the following screenshot is PNG http://developer.gimp.org/screenshots/gimp-text.jpeg - Alan H ------------------------------ Date: Mon, 08 Mar 2004 17:08:33 +0100 From: Dave Neary <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> To: Gimp Developer <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> Cc: GIMPUser <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> Subject: Re: [Gimp-user] The GIMP Foundation Message-ID: <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> In-Reply-To: <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> References: <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii; format=flowed MIME-Version: 1.0 Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit Precedence: list Message: 2 Daniel Rogers wrote:Avoid self-dealing.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)Yes.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 free.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. Cheers, Dave.
