Please read the replies before jumping to conclusions.
Your license isn't suitable and that's the first problem.

That's another problem. You use "color palette" and "color system" as
synonyms. They aren't.
The amount of swatches isn't important at all. What if anybody comes
up with a palette with 5102 shades?
It's not how many swatches you have. It's about how you get them, and
you don't want to talk about that.

So, questioning the quality of your "system" drains my creativity out?
That's why you avoid discussing about technical details? It will make
you less creative?

I tried your swatches. I didn't see anything else than just swatches.
A lot of swatches.
Now you say your printed book (from CMYK swatches, using a hand-picked
generic CMYK profile) has no relationship with your sRGB swatches...
What exactly should I try?

GIMP is a free software project. Contribute with free software. That
means using a free software compatible license and open your code and
technical specifications. That's all I asked, and you always replied
with evasives.

I doubt because you don't want to disclose any details backing the idea that:
a) it is really a system
b) it has any potential
c) it should be included in GIMP or any other free software application.

Yes, I'm a faithless man. I want proof.

Sorry, but I can't find any references saying that Maddog Hall knows
anything about color management, so his opinion is probably as valid
as my mom's, who thinks that my Samsung TN panel looks great.
Celebrity endorsement works for diet pills, not for software.

This is the second or third time you try to introduce your swatches. I
spent a lot of time asking you about your system and suggesting ways
to make it compatible and consistent. Maybe it's time for you to ask
yourself why you didn't get a positive reaction.

Nice closure!
