Where is the main problem?
Is the problem to import GEGL into Gimp,
or is GEGL not advanced enough to use it
in Gimp at the moment?
So: is the work to be done at the Gimp-side or at the GEGL-side?

I know.
But with "current" I meant: "the sources that were used to compile the  
Gimp, which I have installed at the moment as a binary".

OK.
So I first look at git. I have heard of it, but not used it so far.

Yes.

Using non-standard locations hopefully will not need too much effort.
Is this all easy going with "./configure"? I hope so.

Are there scripts, especially for installing all the stuff locally,
so that Gimp-development can be done in this way with just a one-liner?

OK, I will read it.

I have looked into some of the code... I looked on-systematically at  
some places.
The first file I picked had a lot of hard coded values inside,
doing it without defines, so I was shocked at the first moment... ;-)
but the other files I looked into looked quite good.

The coding style is close to what I use for my own code,
and all in all it looked good, yes. :)

aha.

Some days ago I asked something quite unpatiently,
and got no answer during the time I was looged in...
So, thank you for clarification.

Ciao,
