Hi Avi!  'Testing' just involves getting a reasonably
sized collection of PSD files with a good mix of 'real
world' data and more unusual stuff (various aux channels,
layer masks, strange layer modes, strange pixel formats)
and seeing in what ways the PSD loader barfs.  A 'good'
patch is one that allows a greater number of these
files to be successfully read without breaking the
reading of files which were previously readable.

I don't have the (time) resources currently to support
any of my plugins in terms of testing/applying patches
or looking into error reports.  The former should go to
gimp-developer and the latter into bugzilla.  My name
should probably be commented-out from the MAINTAINERS file
until my time situation improves (which seems unlikely
for a while).
