I have been working on implementing the Save + export spec  for a while.
Since it will affect the workflow for basically everyone it would be nice
with getting some testing and comments before we finalize, merge and push to
GNOME master. The patches are attached to the bug report
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=581655 . Quick-guide to apply and
tar -zxvf save-plus-export-2009-05-06.tar.gz
git checkout -b save-plus-export-2009-05-06 master
git am save-plus-export-2009-05-06/*
this will create and switch to a new branch based on top of your local
master branch, and apply the patches to that branch. Then you build and
install as usual.
The patches should cover more or less the entire spec, except
* A single, unified export dialog
* Properly handling *.xcf.bz/gz2
Comments very much appreciated!
