I have read much of the material you suggest, and I've visited
colormanangement.org a number of times.
I can greatly appreciate how much workhas been committed to this project
and the book that you and
Gregory authored, especially since I have subscribed to this list since
2006, knowing I would need Scribus and need all of the referencematerial
I could obstain.
I suggest that with Color Management, we must leap into a whole 'nother
conceptualization beyond pts and type, and margins and all of that, and
that the terminology for color is complex. I.E., I do appreciate all
ofthe work that you and others have committed to this most precious project.
I feel a "dire" need--as a color managment newbie, reading and
re-reading--for some clarification of the differences or equivalences of
the following terminology:

2) What are the differences between "color sets," "palettes,"
"profiles," and "swatches (204 items)."
I expect that this is more work than anyone would want to take on, but I
also suggest that if people like myself are going to "grok"
colormanagement, we're going to need a little more clarity, in the
beginning help pages, with the fundamental terminology.

I was exceptional in Geometry,which came a year before Algebra.
Therefore, the school assumed that my geometry gifts would translate
naturally into algebra, so they put me in Advanced Placement first year
algebra. I was not from a wealthy family, but my town was very highstatus.
In the highstatus of Advanced Placement classes, people were laughed at
for asking basic questions.
I graduated Advanced Placement algebra with a "C," but I did _not_
beginto understand what a _variable_ was until I forced in 1986 to learn
Turbo Pascal programming, after spending my first year with my IBMPC/XT
and then finally understanding how to copya file from one floppy to
My apologies if this is too long, or too much of a 'plaint...
