This is how it _has_ been, but to make GIMP more fun for both developers 
and users, this needs to change.

The change we need to make is to develop things on feature branches and 
merge them to git master when they are ready. That way we can make 
releases much more frequently than every 2 or 3 years.

Making frequent releases is one important part in attracting 
contributors. How fun is it to contribute a feature to a project when 
the feature won't be widely used until after 3 years?

So to be a bit harsh: the error here was that git master broke, not that 
a user wanted to help by pointing it out.
