Thanks a lot for this MEP and I would gladly contribute to the new gallery.

Thanks for adding the link to your gallery. I meant to include it (that's where I got the idea for a "showcase" section) but it slipped through.

 
>From my own experience with the current gallery, I would recommend to have simple scripts that illustrate one feature only, it make things more clear IMHO.

I definitely agree. That's more clearly stated in the MEP, now.
 
From my attempt at making some alternative gallery (http://www.loria.fr/~rougier/coding/gallery/), I would also recommend a standard size for figures unless a different size is strictly necessary.

I agree, but I'm not sure if this should be controlled by the example script, or if the thumbnail generator should force a specific thumbnail size. Regardless, most examples shouldn't be changing the default figure size (since they should be focused on changes pertinent to a single function).
 
For section names, maybe we can use several different schemes with same figures ?

I think this would be better suited for a tagging system, which I think is complementary to the gallery sections. I believe Ben started working on a tagging system, but then life got in the way :)

Also, one important thing is to have a page with all the figures such one can browse visually all the examples.

 Agreed. I don't think the idea of the gallery should change---just the organization of it.

Cheers,
