As for the "we"
Le 22/06/2016 22:48, C R a écrit :
I admit that I don't care at all who "we" includes. Substitute with
"interested parties". I'm well aware that even great ideas might never get
priority. There are no promises, no guarantees. Right now "we" includes
just who is here. If we are not allowed to discuss what we, might do or
might want to do in the future, then I've missed the point entirely.


Just a remark.

Maybe you imagine that speaking as "we" or "interested parties"
gives more weight to your words.
But how do you know that all the 'I' we are dont disagree with
what you think 'we' think or experience ?
As a gimp user's, i havent granted anybody the right to speak on my behalf !

So, I appreciate when contibutors speak as 'I', not 'we',
- all the more when you "dont care at all who 'we' is" -.

Beside being more honest,
a clear "I" testimony will sound much stronger than a twisted "we".

Thanks in advance,
:-)

Already answered this before. "We" is the community. The community is
made
of everyone involved in the GIMP project who can act to improve it. So if
we as a community decide it's worth changing, then we can change it. I
mean, that's usually the point the point of the developer mailing list,
no?

There seems to be a misunderstanding of how this software works. The
"community" (whoever that might include) can decide whatever it wants, but
this is not a democracy, so the real decision is made by others. Mostly
mitch.
Who seems to stay away from all the bike shedding on this list more and
more.
