No, as I outlined in a previous mail, I used "safe" solely to indicate that I
assumed Dave would have no objections to be asked about some apparently
simple usability issue (where, in contrast, a "normal" developer could have -
rightfully - pointed me to some other place). I deducted this from all the
posts in which Dave stated that developers should also answer questions, and
that he himself in fact did and had done so.
I can only emphasize again that I know very well the difference between a
development and a FAQ and documentation team, and I would never have molested
Dave with my question were it not for him pointing out that he had no problem
with that and in a sense "begging" for mail.
It certainly has nothing to do with the mailing list (this is only how I came
to "know" Dave). If Dave would not exist, or would not post such things to
the developer's list, I would have sent the question to some person working
on the Wiki, or to the Gimp-User-mailing list, or somewhere else, but never
to this place (which I, in fact, have not).
It just happens that the developer's list is the only one I follow, and thus
it seemed natural for me to contact Dave, and the quickest way to get a
I did not know that it would turn out this complicated and chaotic. I am sorry
that I have caused you so much trouble and confusion.
