I would like to contribute and maintain ImageMagick:


ImageMagick 5.5.7 is a robust collection of tools and libraries offered 
under a usage license to read, write, and manipulate an image in many 
image formats (over 89 major formats) including popular formats like 

***Reviewer's Caveat***: ImageMagick depends on just about every library 
we have :)  I have not created a list of proper dependencies in the 
setup.hint file below, nor have I done so for the Cygwin-specific 
README.  This is not difficult to do, but it is time-consuming and I 
would like to get to bed; I will create this list later.  Or, I would 
appreciate it very much if someone else ran 'find -name "*.exe" | xargs 
cygcheck' and created a list of required packages for me.

Question for other maintainers: ImageMagick defaults to building as a 
static library... I have not yet tried to build it as a shared library; 
does anyone have an instant educated guess as to whether or not it will 
be a good idea to pursue a shared library?  It would save me a lot of 
wasted effort if someone told me right now that "ImageMagick won't work 
as a shared lib on Cygwin because foo isn't a shared library" or that 
ImageMagick is known to use undefined symbols at link time.  Thanks.
