@patdavid @GIMP is gimp considering changing their name?

I would understand why no.

@maloki It's a beautiful name. When I hear or see the name , all sorts of beautiful things created using it come to my mind. :-)

@patdavid @GIMP

@lohang In response to the years of pressure to change the name, I think "GNU Images" could be an appropriate rename. It retains some connection to "GNU Image Manipulation Program" without being interpretable as an anti-disabled slur.

Not that I have any contacts within the project to whom I could suggest that.

@lnxw48a1 I am sorry I didn't know about this meaning until now. As you know, I come from a different part of the world where English is not the first language. I first heard the word GIMP as the name of a free photoshop alternative.

@lnxw48a1 I honestly had no idea it was a slur. Whenever I see the word 'gimp' what comes to mind is BDSM.
