Well, we (as in "old gimp farts") are dealing with this kind of shit for
at least four years now. If anybody of us would be able to understand what
Carol is asking for then there would be no issue - we would answer her
question and the issue would be no more.
Carol was basically a source of incomprehensible messages for four years
now. It is getting on at least my nerves. Other people told me that
they have left GIMP/Gimp-Web development because of her. That hurts,
especially for a project with that few active developers as GIMP.
In the last few mails carol is indirectly suggesting that the organisation
of the Siggraph stuff is somehow shady. We all want to "kill Wilber" -
whatever that means and Gnome is evil anyway. She coerces Dave to
respond to vague allegations about the GIMP-Gnome relationship,
financing, how-to-become-a-volunteer-for-siggraph and whatever
I am sick of that kind of stuff. I am about to unsubscribe from
gimp-developer because of that kind of stuff - reading gimp-developer is
no fun anymore, because at any time you can hit a message that has a very
confusing and frustrating content.
So yeah, Carol does represent some threat: Driving people away. This is
a very real problem for the GIMP.
