Re: [Gimp-developer] GIMP license from the GIMP team ?

Why just gimp? Why not include Inkscape, & Scribus, etc. and call it Remote
Design Studio (RDS) for short?

Just a thought.

Well, asking the GIMP team here is a good start.  :)

Personally I consider it a bit misleading to include the name "GIMP"
into a remote desktop app that happens to be used to connect to a remote

The User Experience for this kind of application will always be tricky,
since GIMP is designed for the desktop and is not really adjusted to the
Android UI.

I would prefer to reserve the name "GIMP" for an app that uses gimp's
technology with a suitable UI layer. While we currently don't have any
plans to do this it might happen in the future.

I appreciate your efforts and your enthusiasm for gimp, but please try
to find a different name for your application.
