I've been using default babl/GEGL/GIMP for painting for the last several
months, instead of using my patched version of GIMP. I switched to using
default GIMP for three reasons:
* For painting (and probably everything else), default GIMP is faster
than my patched version of GIMP.
* I really like the new ability to switch between linear and
perceptual precision (for example using the new blending/compositing
mode options for layers and using Curves/Levels), without having to make
an ICC profile conversion.
* I want to help debug GIMP code, which is much easier when using
default GIMP because I don't have to first replicate in default GIMP a
bug or crash that happened in my patched version of GIMP.
However, recently I've made some small changes to my default GIMP code
that might mean that I shouldn't be filing *any* bug reports:
* I reverted the changes that were recently made to the color picking
dialogs (https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=783680). I use an
LCH-based color palette when painting, and I always want to see LCH and
RGB at the same time. So I reverted these changes.
* I find it a bit distracting to have Levels and Curves always load
with the last-used settings
(https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=792470). So until this
morning I was reverting the relevant Levels and Curves changes (after
pulling in the latest GIMP code, my patch to revert these changes no
longer works, so I need to make a new patch).
* I switched the primaries used by babl/GEGL/GIMP from sRGB to
Clay/AdobeRGB, to take better advantage of my monitor's color gamut.
Thanks to Pippin's rather awesome new color space code, this seems to
only require making very small changes to one babl file
(babl/babl-space.c) and two GIMP files (libgimpcolor/gimpcolorprofile.c
So given the above code changes, should I bother filing new GIMP bug
reports or not? These code changes seem "small", but I don't have enough
programming savvy to make a decision on this point.
