We can't. The wx-2.5.4 sources contain almost a hundred '.gif' files.

There may be other issues, but that one's conclusive from FSF's POV.

The general solution is to check out the wx sources as of a particular
date and time. I think the problem is that Wendy can't do that from
behind a corporate firewall.

One option is always to use the overnight wx cvs snapshot. If cvs gets
broken, we'd find out quickly and could file a report immediately;
that would be beneficial to everyone.

Another option is to use the latest wx release. Releases seem to be
getting more frequent--is that pattern likely to continue? Data:


  2.5.1 2004-05-31
  2.5.2 2004-07-17 2 months
  2.5.3 2004-10-22 3 months
  2.5.4 2005-03-11 6 months
  2.5.5 2005-04-04 1 month
  2.6.0 2005-05-04 1 month
  2.6.1 2005-06-24 2 months

If wx releases are only a month or two apart, then we'll never get very
far behind. Although we'll have to use wx cvs to test new features, we
probably should release lmi only with an official wx release.
