Awesome. Thanks. I have someone working on converting the files, and I
have also created a image rollover function so that if a png doesnt
exist, it checks for a jpg and then finally a gif.

All the readme's and website pages should be updated this weekend. At
that time I will post the announcement on our website. I dont want to
annouce until all references to 'Linux' are updated to 'GNU/Linux' so
that new eyes dont get the wrong impression.

Im not planning on moving everything to savannah just yet. I figure that
SF may not last forever, but for now I will stay put. We just get too
much exposure via sf, and we have alot of data on there that would have
to be re-added if we moved.
