Guys and gals,
Would people please simply think a bit about the tone of their emails before posting?
It seems that gimp-developer is increasingly perceived as a hostile, rude, or elitist mailing list, and some small effort on the part of posters would help to alleviate this enormously. Making GIMP's development communication environment more friendly is the key first step to winning more developers. (IMO #gimp has largely lost the battle already, and I'd hate to see the mailing list fall.)
Conversely, it would help if people were also slower to take offense. :) It's easy to forget that many if not most of the people here are not native English speakers and might not be able to easily gauge how antagonistic their posts consistantly sound (I've met some of the worse offenders and they're generally not at all antagonistic people :)).
Kind regards, --Adam
i dunno, this is sort of what keeps me reading it.
this list has been rude, over-reactive and jumpy for a very long time. gimp also works really well, for the most part.
Adam: define rude.
I suggest everyone start insulting each others mother next. Keep development going.
