Dear Git Community,

Just a thought and suggestion ..

Git Gui comes with Git download .. (remember this now ..)

https://git-scm.com/downloads states this in text.
https://git-scm.com/downloads/guis states this in text.


However .. If a person is using Google and searching for Git Gui
download am thinking a picture of what Git Gui interface looks like
would help flag to the searcher that they are in the right place ! ?

I.e. https://git-scm.com/downloads/guis has pictures of all the other
GUI Clients .. but not git gui !

Git Gui has the recognizable vertical Git in large Grey Red and Green letters ..

What do you think ?
Can we add a picture of Git Gui interface to either
https://git-scm.com/downloads or https://git-scm.com/downloads/guis ?

kind regards, cheers, Allan Ford.

+1

I don't use git-gui, and I don't see much value in shipping such
probably not widely used interface to the main deliverables, but it's
already there, so we should add it to git-scm.com.

I think this would be a good idea. I have added Jeff in Cc who I think 
maintains the git-scm.com website at [0]. Please create a Pull Request 
there to add the screenshots.

The site is developed and maintained collaboratively, but yes, please
point people to making PRs at the repository you linked. :)

(I don't have a real opinion either way on screenshots for git-gui; it
is mentioned on the "GUIs" page, but it does not have its own entry in
the list, so that's an obvious thing to change).

Ahh, so we could have actual fonts in git-scm.com for Linux? (not the
same font as <p>Hello World!</p>)
