Huh? We have several developers waiting to implement these things.
Actually for most of the things, some of the code has already been
written. If working with the UI team means that we can only have one or
two changes per release cycle, then that means that only one or two
developers can work on GIMP and that means that it will not improve

These are the things that people are actively working on. I cannot
assign tasks to developers and you can't do that either. This is a
voluntary project. People spend their time on the things they want to
spend their time on. They are willing to follow advice from the UI team,
but that does not mean that they are just a bunch of code-writing

Please assume them to be on the roadmap then. Everything on my list is
on our roadmap and some of the items have been sitting there for years.
These are all long-standing problems that need to be addressed. And if
we can address them now, then we should do that.
