[This package will replace ImageMagick for various reasons.  One of 
those reasons is that the GM folks are committed to provide ABI 
stability and proper version numbers, whereas IM is not making such a 
committment and has already made various arbitrary changes to ABI 
version numbers.]

I would like to contribute and maintain GraphicsMagick:


Tester's Notes
You can point Cygwin's setup.exe to the following address to download 
and test the GraphicsMagick package:


Reviewer's Notes
1) I moved the bin/*-config scripts into the -devel package.

2) I moved the /usr/lib/GraphicsMagick-1.0.4 directory into the main 
package... but I think it probably should go in the libGraphicsMagick0 
package instead.  Chuck and I have been discussing this a lot but I got 
confused about where the final location should be; I also realized that 
I don't know what the final location should be, so I want to get some 
instruction before I move this directory again.  The deciding issue 
would be whether the libraries query /usr/lib/GraphicsMagick-1.0.4 or 
whether only gm.exe queries it; if the libraries query it then the 
directory must be in the libGraphicsMagick0 package, right?

3) You'll notice that the patch file changes the version.sh script to 
report 1.0.4 (it was reporting 1.0.5), while the official source 
tarballs don't need this change.  The reason is that I told Bob about 
this fix and he changed the 1.0.4 source tarballs instead of bumping the 
version number to 1.0.6... I have not grabbed the newest 1.0.4 source 
tarball so I still have the patch.

4) My build is done with --enable-shared but without --with-modules 
(these are what I used for ImageMagick too).  It seems from the 
discussions that the /usr/lib/GraphicsMagick-1.0.4 directory does not 
need to be broken out into a separate versioned package and can be left 
in either GraphicsMagick or libGraphicsMagick0 (see #2 above).
