This applies to both sides of the discussion. Except one side wants
the old behaviour kept and one doesn't. Whose responsibility is it,
then? What do Alexandre and the rest of the devs actually owe users in
an open-source project? Particularly years after the change was first
mooted and discussed.

There are ALREADY plugins for those who want the old behaviour back
(not that I've used them). While I can understand the fly-by posts by
ignorant rant-ers (happens everywhere), I do not understand long-term
readers of this ML continuing this discussion. Someone has already
'fixed' what you believe is broken....

I use everyday "save-export-clean.py" plugin. Its' different from gimp-2.6 and other image editors like Krita, Digikam Showfoto, etc.. behavior. It becomes complicated because you get 5 options :
- save
- save as
- export
- save/export clean (python plugin)
- save for web
I do not understand myself why users (who use Gimp everyday, professional or not) opinion is not taken. Developers could give two options in the configuration: 2.6 OR 2.8 "save / save as" behavior. Gimp-2.6 behavior is not "old": it's the "standard" available in Krita, Digikam Showfoto, Libreoffice, Phot$op, most text editors, etc...
