I would be happy to work with ender if I knew who he/she is. :) I
started building Gimp for myself and folks picked up on it and
uploaded to various places. Plus, I have had a lot of positive
feedback from lot of folks, especially on gimpchat.com and Flickr.
I know it's possible, but I have not had time to set up such an
automated system. I am still in the learning process.
