Please, bear in mind this is a voluntary project - so while the object
you had as feedback is valuable, meaning "the tutorial on gimp.org is
so old as to
be unusable" is valuable, the way you write it will only resent people
make someone go after learning all the steps needed to update that
part of the page,
and re-write it.
That said, you are even welcome to help writing new up to date tutorials -
