Re: [Gimp-user] Replication Array Layer

My goals are to change things around so they are focused upon positive
things.  I am doing this with LibSF and the tools I'm creating, but in
general I want to encourage other people to do this as well with their

GIT is a bad name.  It's insulting, hurtful, etc.  It has no place being
the name of such a powerful tool.

GIMP is a non-professional name.  I think Image Professional would be
better.  Or something that has a positive upbeat tone.

I don't expect people to change.  But it would be great.  It would allow me
to work on the project because it disassociates itself with Stallman.

Best regards,
Rick C. Hodgin

Also, the name "GIMP" is not very professional as it's associated with the
slang use of the word.  It's along the same lines as "GIT," named that way
on purpose by Linus.

The irony is that most people whose mother's tongue isn't English learn
about the other meaning of "gimp" because people
complain about Gimp's name.
