yes, this is very interesting. in a group effort you never know who is
running the booths at these things. you hope it is someone who
understands the gimp and can answer questions.
at one of the recent conventions i went to, there was a nice booth babe
who told me that no one who really worked on actual development showed
up to work booths. this might have been misinformation as i had
expressed some concern for being yelled at by someone who was actually
waorking on things ....
that was a long sentence for, how nice that the gimp people provided one
of their finest developers to be a booth babe at one of these events.
and since simon only is rude to me, he is probably one of the better
developers to represent gimp <em>out there</em>.
such a pity that the people who hosted the gimp developer did not know
what they had.

would be nice if someone is able to volunteer to handle a gimp booth
here, that they let this list know so that at least we know who it is
and what we might need to be sorry for or proud of, depending on how it
maybe send it to the developer list also?
