another thing that came to my mind:
- Add a (unit) testing framework and tests to GIMP.
Details are left out for now but the idea is to get more unit tests
and to make it easier to add and maintain them. But also to have more
complex test scripts that perform GIMP operation using the PDB. These
scripts would be run on a set of test images and the results would be
compared against a set of output images. The test framework should
also allow to easily test functionality of a certain plug-in. This way
errors could easily be spotted and it would make changes to plug-ins a
lot safer. Such tests could also be used as benchmarks to help with
Should we try to turn this into a more detailed proposal?
