It has been mentioned on the user list as well as the developer list.
(this thread has a lot of discussion)
The TLDR at the time was developers didn't want to distribute through a
proprietary platform or require users to have a Steam account to download.
I was then, and still now, of the opinion it would be great to distribute
through Steam in *addition* to our normal download channels for obtaining
GIMP. Some of the modelers and game mod developers use GIMP to create
textures for their models.
As it stands, I don't think Steam will be a considered distribution channel
unless a core developer wishes to speak up with a change of opinion. It
would also require a contributor to get familiar with the Steam release
process and provide steam releases as GIMP is released.
