Jehan actually has a plan in mind (along with pippin). The new idea will be to consolidate assets from multiple sources in a federated list within GIMP to make them available (where possible - see prokoudine's statement about C plugins).
Perhaps you'd like to write some new tutorials? We could use some nice tutorials that cover beginning concepts for newcomers (or really of all skill levels). We need to update the documentation for a new release as well - do you feel up to writing some documentation? pat On Wed, Jul 27, 2016 at 3:55 PM Alexandre Prokoudine < alexandre.prokoud...@gmail.com> wrote: > On Wed, Jul 27, 2016 at 8:45 PM, Christopher Watson wrote: > > Saw that the gimp plugin registry is down right now and I'd like to help. > > Anything that needs to be done with web design/development I'm available > > for.
