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.

maybe he doesn't have cvs access ....
