First of all, thanks for taking the time to answer my question by email. When I
asked it, I really thought that I was going to get a submission in. It turns
out that MOST of my weekend was spent as a driver-organizer-expediter for a
friend's father's funeral that I thought I would just be visiting briefly.
How much more time? As near and dear as the members of the POV-Ray community
are to me, I'm afraid that many are nearly as bad as myself when it comes to
working under deadlines. The phrase "open-ended" comes to mind.
As for subject matter... To be honest, MOST other subjects would be more
interesting than "office supplies". (I wasn't going to say anything since
contributing seemed a far nobler act than griping.) Perhaps it would work
better to make a list of categories available.
Finally, even though you said that you didn't want to clutter up the binaries
folder with submission code, I'm guessing that it WOULD be a good idea to post
example images as they come in because quite a bit of activity is generated
around here as people respond to one another's images with variations and the
like. I think your project is a good one. I hope that you won't be
discouraged by the challenges of working with a busy volunteer community.
