Very nice question Joanmarie, who takes decisions on behalf of the
GIMPNET network? if GIMPNET is aliased the GNOME IRC network why they
don't listen to contributor's ideas and suggestions? why they don't
have a single place where people can raise concerns? also how do you
expect a newcomer to understand that GIMPNET is the GNOME network when
the MOTD is still set to be "bork bork...don't irc as root" in many
GIMPNET's servers? or when the topic of a channel isn't set at all or
disappears because there are no services?

There are several things to improve and as far as I see it now the
GIMPNET networks looks like being unmaintained.

Thanks Joanmarie for pointing this out.
