Well, keeping in mind that this is for commercial printing and I will
include the version with the background color removed for printing

Also updated the wiki page for Existing Designs with this, only a
trimmed down 1.8 Meg file :-/


Just wondering about why you are using XCF format for the "editable"
files?  I know it is the default for GIMP, but some people on this
might not know that.
They can ask.. actually, I should of used Inkscape, or so I feel, but
I'm not nearly as proficient (let alone efficient) with Inscape as I am
with GIMP and that is really the only solid reason.


  I have been using 
Inkscape for about 2 or 3 years.  The thing I do with the cover file is 
embed it into an Inkscape file to format it the actual print size for 
the cover.  Then print the Inkscape file instead of resizing the image 
during the printing through GIMP.

Well, Inckscape was used alot in putting together, to generate separate
elements from the vector sources, scaled and then exported as png.

I use to use JPG over PNG for most all my images.  GIF for transparency 
issues/needs.  But it seems that I am dealing with PNG a lot these days.

Does ti still hold up, I think so.


I do not know who decided on Green being the LO color, but my favorite 
color is a shade of green.

So are we going to use Alt-8 for the cover?  Nice to have both 
backgrounds to choose from.

Well, I'm feeling pretty good and #8 (real iteration number is much
higher :), but then again I'm getting tired of looking at this piece and
really need to turn to the inside pamphlet now. (I can sprint on that
starting today and have something up tonight or early morning)

So - is #8 and #8-wht good with you?
