I tried telling people on IRC and was met by an astonishing level of
arrogance. Basically they knew about the problem, having deliberately
caused it, but I'm not good enough to be using CVS 1.2 and I should go
away and stop bothering them. I had hoped that sanity would prevail if I
left them alone for a few weeks, but it did not, hence my mail.
There are plenty of Free Software projects that could use me and I
don't have a lot of free time. I love Gimp, but not enough to bow and
scrape every time I want to fix some bugs. So, now Gnumeric has filters
for Excel 4.0 and below and Gimp still has the same old bugs.
I'll say the same thing I said then. Maybe I'll have some more spare
time in a few weeks, and if I do I'll see if Gimp 1.2 CVS is in decent
shape for me to do some work on it.
