Discovering that Debian and/or Ubuntu decided to make their GIMP 2.8
packages depend on gegl-0.3 instead of gegl-0.2 came as a surprise to
some of the GIMP developers.
We prefer not to raise library dependencies in the stable branch, and
have certainly not planned for changes in GIMP code to accommodate for
this in the stable branch - as you can see, the patch author for the fix
in the GIMP master branch isn't sure if the patch can be backported to
be compatible with both gegl-0.2 and gegl-0.3:
This makes this hard to fix from our side for distros that choose to
deviate from the upstream dependencies.
Can I assume that Ubuntu tries to fix this for their package, based on
the patch(es) proposed in this bug report?
