Sounds like a productive year. Thanks to everyone who invested the effort and
thank you, Alexandre, for preparing this summary.

I do hope that, next year, the endless discussions in GIMP’s mailing list about
the "HATE the new Save/Export behaviour" or "GIMP’s interface SUCKS" will calm
down a bit.

I’ll try to dedicate some time for helping in that (being a programmer
proficient in C and a former GIMP contributor and all) but note that

How many “one-liners” do I actually write? I don’t know; maybe a couple dozen
a day. But I guess I must be unusual, because as we all know, AWK was a
complete failure and vanished into obscurity since it didn’t address anyone’s
real needs. (That was sarcasm.) — “Twelve Views of Mark Jason Dominus”
