This was also my main argument against tracking any 3rd party installers
in GNOME Bugzilla. The GIMP developers have no way of fixing a bug even
if they know how it should be done.
But seeing the waste amount of bugs filed primarily for win32 installers
since we released 2.0.0 I am slowly starting to change my mind. Perhaps
a '3rd party installer' or similar component should be added to the GIMP
product. Bugs can then be re-assigned to that component instead of being
At least I think we should try it out and see how it works out.
