Well we have LGM next week, so there will be a few of us on the list
together face to face. :)

LGM : http://libregraphicsmeeting.org/2011/

I will make an effort to get all the color savvy people for a sit down
to discuss this for sure.

The other thought this brings is having a printing summit in parallel
with LGM....


Thanks for pushing this..
