Here's a patch to add optional libstartup-notification support to The

GIMP-1.3 does this already. We will not include it in 1.2 since only bug-fixes go into 1.2.

I'm interested, from a project point of view, why many (a good proportion) of the patches that we get on this mailing list or in bugzilla from 'external' (non-CVS-account) contributors are against 1.2.x.

Are developers not very well aware of the positioning of
1.3.x (development) versus 1.2.x (stable)?  Is it too hard
to get a 1.3.x build to patch against?

Miguel, or anyone else, can you comment?

Identifying the cause of this weakness would help to smooth
the bumps in accepting (very welcome) external contributions.
