Is there that much of an Asian community in graphics Free Software?
Having lived for 3 years in asian countries (Japan and South Korea), I
felt that there were not that many. I was for instance, if not
mistaken, the only active GIMP dev (not speaking of past dev, I
imagine there would have been) in whole Asia. And Free Software is
definitely less of a given there (though you can nowadays find by
chance Linux users in Europe for instance, finding any in Japan or
Korea is very rare).

All this to say that I am not sure that they have enough contributors
there to fork. I would have been the only one able to represent GIMP,
and I'm not even there anymore. :P

Also I definitely prefer to be able to go to the actual annual meeting
of whatever graphics software I would contribute to, not a lesser
version of it. For this reason too, I don't think this is a good idea
to fork. LGM is not big enough yet to allow this.

So I say: let's not discard any proposition please. We are already
flying quite a few people from far away places, I'm unsure this would
be such a huge difference.
